What is an "SR-22 Filing"?
An SR-22 Filing is a form issued by an insurance company which removes a suspension order placed by the DMV on your driving priviledge. The filling provides a guarantee to the California Department of Motor Vehicles that an insurance company has issued at least minimum liability coverage for the person making that filing; AND - that the insurance company will notify the DMV should the insurance ever lapse for any reason.

Who needs one?
People whose license is under suspension by the California Department of Motor vehicles need an SR22 Filing to reinstate their license. This includes, but is not limited to the following suspension reasons: drunk driving violations; more minor moving violations in one year than the law permits; suspensions from unpaid fines or parking violations; uninsured accidents; failure to comply with other DMV laws or regulations.
What process is involved in reinstating my license?
1.) First, you need to know what is on your driving record.
2.) Secondly, if you want, call the DMV to ask them what other DMV fees are needed to reactivate (usually a $55.00 reinstatement fee, and payment of all other outstanding parking/moving violation fines).
3.) With that information, we can help find you the LOWEST PRICE for insurance, so the next step is getting a quotation for the proper coverage (fill out our online quote form)
4.) After getting a general price indication, call the agent back to confirm the quote, or request a price quotation via the internet for FREE. If the price is OK with you, the agent will fax or mail you the paperwork to start your policy, and upon receipt, issue the SR22 Filing. If you pay via credit card, money order, or cashier's check, they can issue the filing INSTANTLY, which permits you to go to a local DMV office to reinstate your license IMMEDIATELY.
That's it! After completing these steps your license will be reinstated!!
