Best Answer

Auto insurance companies do not require drivers to file an SR-22, however, the DMV does. If you have been caught of driving without insurance or you have been convicted of a DUI you may be required to file an SR-22 with the DMV to prove you maintain continuous auto insurance coverage. SR-22's are proof of financially responsibility. By filing this form, your insurance company will notify the DMV when your policy lapses or is cancelled.

What happens when a driver carrying SR22 insurance in South Carolina receives a speeding ticket for going 80 mph in a 70 mph zone?

You have to pay the ticket or fight it just like every body else. SR22 Insurance is the same as Auto Insurance, Except that a court has ordered you to have your insurer file a Form SR22 as proof that you are insured with the state to assure them you are properly insured so that your drivers license was not suspended. The SR22 is usually ordered because of a prior citation, usually for drinking and driving or driving without insurance or for a prior accident without insurance.

If you cancelled your sr22 insurance but the state didnt revoke your license do you really need the sr22?

If the state has required you to file an SR22, then you do still need it. You should contact your State of licensure to determine if an SR22 filing is still required. Just because the state did not revoke your license does not mean that you do not need one. Generally if you filed your SR22 within 30 days of the state ordering you to do so, then your license will not be suspended because you filed your SR22 timely, this does not mean that they will not suspend your license later if you have failed to maintain a required SR22 filing. The required filing period is for 2 to 3 years depending on your state law and what a court may have ordered.

How do you get a driver's license number if it is lost and your license is suspended but you need your DL number to file an sr22 and pay the state of Texas to get your suspension lifted?

If your license is suspended, just go to your local Drivers License office with your State issued ID card if you have one. If not, then take your birth certificate and your social security card the same as you did when you first got your drivers license. They will give you your Drivers license number if you can appropriately identify yourself. Your ID card in Texas will have a different number from your DL card but they are associated in the state database. You will then need to file your SR22 through an Insurer licensed to do business in the state. A Texas Sr22 Insurance provider.
