Getting a DUI or DWI can be one of the most traumatic events in your life. Once your driving privileges have been suspended by the DMV or the court there isn't a lot of direction or instruction by anyone how to reinstate your driver's license. It can feel like a catch-22 where you can't get your license without an SR-22, but you can't get insurance (and an SR-22) without getting your license. We take the mystery out of getting your license reinstated by giving you as much information about SR filings. We offer a guide for getting your license back as quickly and inexpensively as possible.
By the time most people search for an SR-22 they have already been to court, to their DMV hearings or both. The DMV usually orders everyone that has been charged with a DUI to get an SR-22. Sometimes the DMV orders unlucky drivers to get an SR-22 when they become a “negligent operator”, by accumulating too many violations or accidents within a certain period of time.
