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:

  1. Contact a state-authorized insurance agency to request for a SR-22 filing.
  2. Pay the processing fee to the agency. You can request an online car insurance quote.
  3. 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.
  4. Upon receiving the request from the agent the carrier sends the SR-22 directly to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles in about 30 days.
  5. If accepted, you will receive the SR-22 from the agency, along with a letter from the Bureau of Motor Vehicle.
  6. 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.
