What Is Connecticut SR22 Car Insurance?

A Connecticut SR22 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 SR22 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.

Who in Connecticut needs SR22 Insurance?

Connecticut SR22 auto insurance filings are mandatory for drivers who have had their licenses revoked, before these drivers can have their licenses reinstated. Drivers who are considered high-risk (i.e. drivers who have previously been ticketed for failure to carry state-minimum auto insurance), can also be required to complete Connecticut SR-22 car insurance filings. Such drivers may be required to file SR22 forms even if they do not own vehicles.

Are There Different Types of Connecticut SR22 Insurance Forms?

There are two types of Connecticut SR-22 forms. Vehicle owners must file Owners SR22 forms. Those who do not own their own vehicles must file Non Owners SR22 forms, verifying that they carry policies that provide, at least, the minimum amount of coverage for any vehicle they may drive.

Is SR22 Insurance Required in Connecticut?

In Connecticut, insurance companies are required to notify the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles of any insurance policy lapses or cancelations. However, those drivers deemed to be high-risk drivers and those who have had their licenses revokes must still complete Connecticut SR22 auto insurance filings.

How Do I File a Connecticut SR22 Form?

Connecticut SR-22 forms must be filed through the insurance provider and can be obtained for a small fee (amount varies by provider). All SR22 forms must be submitted electronically to the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles. The CT DMV does not accept filings by fax or mail, and will not accept photocopied documents.
