SR22s in Coupland
Here at Stanley Insurance Agency, our team is authorized to file SR22s. The SR22 is a document required by a court or by a state law for persons convicted of certain traffic violations, such as a DUI, reckless driving, multiple offenders, accidents without insurance coverage in force, etc. It is filed with the department of motor vehicles by an insurance company on behalf of an insured individual who has a suspended license that can only be reinstated once an SR22 filing is on record with the department of motor vehicles and once all fines and other court ordered requirements are met.
Filing for this document is with the department of motor vehicles, and it's necessary to maintain an active driver's license per an order mandated by the court. This filing is going to be necessary for up to 3 years after the date of conviction of the driver. The filing is proof that the driver is in compliance with the state's Financial Responsibility law. The SR22 filing is submitted electronically to the department of motor vehicle's database. If your policy lapses, we wil notify the department of motor vehicles of the status of your coverage - remember, it is against the law in the state of Texas to drive without valid insurance. When this happens, the department of motor vehciles will suspend your 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. Typically, there will be a yearly filing fee from your insurance company for the SR22 form. Once the probationary period is over, the SR22 filing is not required to maintain an active driver's license. Every state has its own requirements and variations on this form.
