Because an SR-22 is associated with high-risk auto insurance, it is important you properly file the required documents. Also, keep in mind, a teen driver designated as a high-risk driver must also file an SR-22 if required. Here are the necessary steps:
- Contact a state-authorized insurance agency to request for a SR-22 filing.
- Pay the processing fee to the agency. You can request an online car insurance quote.
- As per the State laws of Indiana, the minimum amount of coverage is as follows:
- $25,000 for one person killed or injured
- $50,000 for two or more persons killed or injured
- $10,000 for property damage.
- Upon receiving the request from the agent the carrier sends the SR-22 directly to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles in about 30 days.
- If accepted, you will receive the SR-22 from the agency, along with a letter from the Bureau of Motor Vehicle.
- The SR-22 must be maintained for a minimum period of 3 years after the date of suspension.
- An amount of $55,000 in cash or securities may be deposited with the State Treasurer in place of the SR-22. The motorist can also file a surety bond or a real estate bond approved by a court of record.
