What Is Connecticut SR-22 Car Insurance?

A Connecticut SR-22 car insurance filing is often required for drivers who have lost their licenses due to DUI or other legal infractions in order to have their licenses reinstated. The Connecticut SR-22 car insurance form is a document verifying that the licensed individual carries at least the minimum amount of coverage required in the state of Connecticut – $20,000 in personal liability coverage per injured person, $40,000 in personal liability maximum per incident, and $10,000 in property damage liability per incident. A Connecticut SR-22 car insurance filing is separate from the normal proof-of-insurance documents provided by insurance carriers, but serves much the same purpose, providing the state of Connecticut with a means of more closely keeping track of Connecticut insurance policies.

Such drivers may be required to file SR-22 forms even if they do not own vehicles.

Are There Different Types of Connecticut SR-22 Insurance Forms?

There are two types of Connecticut SR-22 forms. Vehicle owners must file Owners SR-22 forms. Those who do not own their own vehicles must file Non Owners SR-22 forms, verifying that they carry policies that provide, at least, the minimum amount of coverage for any vehicle they may drive.
