An SR-22 insurance policy is a certificate of insurance that shows the Secretary of State proof of insurance for the future, as required by law. SR-22 is a motor vehicle liability insurance which requires the insurance company to certify coverage to the Division of Motor Vehicles, and the insurance company must notify DMV any time the policy is canceled, terminated or lapses. You do not need to own a car to buy this kind of insurance. If you do not own a car, ask your insurance company about a non-owner SR-22 policy.
SR22 is not a type of insurance. It is the name of a particular form that insurance companies offer and is often required if your license has been suspended or revoked.
The Primary reason an SR22 Filing is ordered is due to the driver's already having been convicted of a Failure to maintain Auto Insurance as required by law. It can also be required after certain other traffic related offenses such as DUI's, DWI's and other serious traffic.
If your SR22 endorsed Auto Insurance Policy cancels, lapses or expires for any reason, The Insurer is required by law to send an SR22 Filing to the state DMV notifying them that you are once again no longer in compliance with the law. The state can then suspend your driver´s license. You will have to call Cloverleaf Insurance 1-800-530-5822 to issue an SR22 Filing to have your license re-instated.
