An SR22 may be required for the following situations:
Drivers who do not own a vehicle but still wish to reinstate their driving privileges may need to provide non-owner SR22 policy. Once an SR22 expires or is cancelled, Vern Fonk will issue an SR-26 certifying the cancelation of the policy.
Six states – Delaware, Kentucky, Minnesota, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania – do not require SR22 insurance. If a driver is required to carry SR22 and he or she moves to one of these six states, they must still continue to meet the requirements legally mandated by their former state.
All vehicles in Washington and Oregon must carry a minimum liability insurance policy. If a Washington driver has his or her license suspended, the driver must provide proof of financial responsibility by filing an SR22. This SR22 will certify the driver has the minimum amount of liability insurance for a certain period of time.
Washington drivers are required to carry liability limits of at least $25,000 bodily injury per person, $50,000 bodily injury per accident, and $10,000 property damage.
Washington requires that an SR-22 endorsement be carried for thirty-six (36) consecutive months. If the policy is not renewed at least fifteen (15) days prior to expiration, a letter will be sent to the state, resulting in suspension of the driver’s license. Once the policy has been renewed, the state will reinstate the driver’s license. It is highly recommended that the insured renew their policy at least forty-five (45) days ahead of time.
There are two (2) ways to avoid having to obtain an SR-22 endorsement. A driver can make a deposit of $60,000 to the State Treasurer or obtain a surety bond through a surety company such as Vern Fonk that is licensed to do business in Washington and Oregon.
In the state of Oregon, the mandatory insurance law (ORS 806.010) states that every driver must insure his vehicle and that the minimum liability coverage is as follows:
By law, the driver is required, to keep the certificate active for 3 years dating from the end date of the suspension that required it, or for a period of 3 years plus 33 days from an uninsured conviction date.
If a driver must prove “future responsibility”, he must file an actual SR22 certificate at the DMV; it will be posted with his driving record. A driver cannot simply show his insurance card as proof. The insurance card will be required by Oregon law, to be present in a vehicle that is operated on Oregon freeways.
The DMV closely monitors compliance with SR22 requirements, and if the insurance lapses, the insurance company by law is required to notify the DMV of that fact and the driver’s license will be suspended.
