    if you got a dui and took care of everything you may need to get SR22 a few years. it's basicly a personal insurance to drive any car that is registerd with the dmv.
    if you fail to pay it counts agianst your credit report. you recently were able to purchase a house so i don't think it'll be a problem. just be ready to prove that you were not living in california.

    go over to any DMV and ask for your driving record. it should be like $15 or so. they should have it ready for you in a few minutes.

    i don't knwo the details about the sr22. but it's basicly a personal insurance to drive any care. i wonder if you have sr22, would you need to insure other automobiles you may have. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif just a thought.

    Seems to be some confusion on what an sr-22 is. An sr-22 is a regulation by the state dmv, requiring a person who holds a valid drivers license, and register's a motor vehicle within the state, to provide proof that they are covered for the states minimum allowed limit of liability insurance. When you call your agent to purchase the insurance, just tell them that you require an sr-22 form to be filed with the DMV. Some companys charge extra for this, and some do not. What this does is if you fail to keep the required minimum liability on the vehicle, then your insurance company is required by law to notify DMV of your lapse in coverage. Then at this point DMV suspends your license until you restore the coverage and pay a reinstatement fee for your license. Some states (like Virginia) will also so assess a uninsured motorist fee if you let the coverage lapse. It can be quite expensive ($600.00 or more) which you also must pay before you can get your license back. Usually an sr-22 is required when a person is found to be driving without insurance or, convicted of a serious moving violation, like DUI or reckless driving. Also if your driving record aquires to many demerits for many tickets in a short period. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
