Filing involves a document which is required by the department of motor vehicles to maintain a driver's license in active status per a court mandated order. The filings are required for 3 years after the conviction date. The filing is proof that the driver is in compliance with the state's Financial Responsibility law. The form can be submitted electronically by us. When and if your policy cancels or lapses, the insurance carrier notifies the department of motor vehicles of the lapsed or cancelled status. The department of motor vehicles then issues a suspension of the driver's license.
The SR22 is a system meant to ensure that drivers who have been convicted of serious driving offenses comply with the state's financial responsibility laws. There is usually an annual filing fee charged by the insurance company to file the SR22 with the state. After the 3 year period is over, filing will no longer be required each year. Every state has its own requirements and variations on this form.
