SR-22 high risk insuranceExtreme DUI convictions in Maricopa County carry life-altering repercussions. In addition to a conviction requiring mandatory jail, mandatory fines, license suspension, and the ignition interlock device you may be required to carry SR-22 insurance.

SR-22 insurance which is sometimes referred as a certificate of insurance or a financial responsibility filing is simply a high-risk insurance policy required by law if you have been convicted of a DUI/DWI in Maricopa County
.
The SR-22 may be required regardless of whether you own a vehicle or not and it is typically required for a number of years after your conviction. If you fail to pay the premiums the insurance company will contact the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles), and the SR-22 will be canceled. From that point on an SR-26 will be filed with the DMV. An SR-26 form is filed when the insurance policy has been canceled due to the failure of payment and will lead to your driving privileges being revoked.

SR-22 insurance is just one of the expenses that you will incur if you have been convicted of an extreme DUI.
