No. A drivers' license is issued by the DPS and only the DPS - or a court - can suspend someone's license.

However, if Texas requires insurance and you don't have it, if an insurance company notifies DPS that you don't have insurance, then DPS could suspend your license.

Can an insurance company request the state to suspend your drivers license?

No, not usually. The insurance company has nothing to do with suspension of drivers licenses, that's up to the Department of Motor Vehicles or whatever it is in your state. I have seen times where a person owes an insurance company money from hitting an insured vehicle when the party at fault did not have insurance required by law. In these cases I have seen our state suspend a drivers license until the balance is paid in full to the insurance company. This is because it was due to failure to obey a state law of not driving without minimum required insurance limits. I saw once where a 15 year old could not get a license until this was paid off in full.

The question is not worded correctly or is using the wrong terminology. You cannot put a lien on a state-issued drivers license.

Should you go and pay your reinstatement fee and get sr22 insurance before you go to court or will they just suspend them again?

Yes, you should get it before you go to court. If you appear in court without the required Sr22 Certificate the judge will have no choice but to suspend your license as you are continuing to demonstrate that you have no desire to comply with the law. As far as will they suspend your license anyway, well that depends on just how bad a driver the court perceives you to be. But if you go to court and have not obtained your sr22 filing you are guaranteed they will suspend your drivers license.
