An SR22 is also referred to as a Certificate of Financial Responsibility. Like an FR44, there’s no such thing as SR22 insurance, though you may hear people refer to it in this way. An SR22 is simply a document that your auto insurance company files with the state to certify that you have an insurance policy in place that meets that state’s minimum liability coverage or financial responsibility requirements.
As of June 2018, only Virginia and Florida use FR44s. An FR44 is sometimes called “DUI insurance,” however, it’s not a type of insurance. An FR44 is a certificate verifying insurance coverage that meets the state’s applicable requirements for financial responsibility. An FR44 is required when a person is applying to reinstate their driver’s license following a DUI or DWI conviction.
Your auto insurance company is responsible for filing this certificate with the regulatory authority in your state (e.g. the Department of Motor Vehicles).
In Florida, an FR44 is required if you are convicted of driving under the influence of drugs or other intoxicants. An FR44 is required for driver’s license reinstatement and must be maintained for three years.
