SR-22 Insurance Forms
A person who has been convicted of DUI may immediately lose their auto insurance coverage once their policy provider finds out about their conviction. Additionally, the state may hold that individual’s driver’s license until they can prove that they have gotten car insurance again. When this occurs, a person may need to find another insurance policy that will cover them despite a DUI conviction, specifically in the form of SR-22 coverage.
Unfortunately, a new car insurance policy is not the only concern that those convicted of DUI may face.

What Is SR-22 Insurance?
SR-22 insurance is the common name for high-risk insurance policies that are generally required for a driver after they have been convicted of DUI. In actuality, an SR-22 is not the insurance itself, but a form provided by the new insurance provider that states to the government that the high-risk driver has purchased and agreed to maintain their new policy. With an SR-22 on file, a person can have their suspended driver’s license reinstated.
However, a person can lose their on-file SR-22 form under the following conditions:
- Moving out of state
- Losing the insurance policy
- Being convicted of another DUI
When this occurs, a person may have their license suspended until they can prove their financial responsibility once again.
If you have been convicted of DUI, the consequences can seriously affect your lifestyle and reputation. For more information regarding your defense options in order to fight these charges, contact the Arizona DUI lawyers of Thompson & Volquardsen, P.C., by calling 602-510-9999 today.
