If you are convicted of a DUI, you need to file for an SR-22 in Colorado because of your license suspension and/or revocation. But what exactly is an SR-22, and how long will you need to maintain it?
The SR-22 Process in Colorado
An SR-22 in Colorado is proof that you have the minimum liability insurance coverage for the state. Filing for an SR-22 is a requirement that is a part of your license reinstatement process from specific suspensions or revocations. On average, you will need an SR-22 in Colorado for three years, but it could be up to five years.
You can file for an SR-22 with your current auto insurance company. If they do not offer the SR-22, you must search for another auto insurance provider to maintain your Colorado reinstatement requirements. In either case, your insurance company will provide a form for you to fill out. Once completed, you can mail in the form to the Colorado Department of Revenue (DOR). Their mailing address will be on the Application for Reinstatement.
Make sure you maintain your SR-22! If it is no longer in effect, your insurance company must notify the DMV, and this could mean your driver’s license will be suspended longer.
