What is SR-22 coverage?

An SR-22 form is a document that certifies the financial responsibility required by the state. This document verifies that you are carrying at least the state-mandated amount of car insurance.

How much does SR-22 insurance cost a month?

The usual filing fee for an SR-22 is $25, but your insurance premium will rise depending on the infraction that caused you to get an SR-22. The reason you were required to obtain the SR-22 will directly relate to how much your premiums may spike.
