The Dreaded: SR-22


The dreaded SR-22 is a Certificate of Financial Responsibility. The SR-22 is sometimes required for a driver to reinstate their driver’s license.

The SR-22 is a document from your insurance company that verifies that you have an active auto insurance policy.

The SR-22 can be required for a variety of bad reasons, such as:

  • A DUI or DWI or any serious moving violation
  • An instance of being caught driving without insurance and/or without a license
  • An at-fault accident while driving without insurance
  • Repeat traffic offenses or too many tickets in a short time period
  • A revoked or suspended license

Companies don’t like to issue SR-22’s, however it’s not a question of whether they like to.

If you’re having a problem getting an SR-22 issued contact the MA Division of Insurance.
