If you are a California resident, you have a DUI case, and you want to regain the use of your license, you are required to obtain an SR-22 form from your insurance agent that verifies you have met the state’s requirements with respect to auto liability insurance. Upon receiving an SR-22 certificate, your insurance company will forward a copy to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
An SR-22 must be obtained anytime you wish to reinstate your license following a suspension or revocation. It is also required in order to continue driving with an ignition interlock device (IID) installed. Although they are most commonly associated with DUI-related license suspensions, an SR-22 may be necessary under a variety of circumstances, including any high-risk or negligent driving.
