BUTTE COUNTY SR22 INSURANCE
You rely on your car for work, and school, and everything else you need or want to do. But, now your driver's license has been suspended. And, you've just been told that you cannot drive until you obtain and file an SR22 with the State of California Department of Motor Vehicles (CA DMV). You need your driving privileges in order to maintain your normal daily life, but it may be unclear to you what an SR22 is, or how to find it and file it properly.
Many people incorrectly believe that an SR22 is a kind of insurance policy. But, it is not insurance; it's simply a form required by the state as proof of a driver's Safety Responsibility (SR). The SR22 certificate proves that you are maintaining enough liability insurance coverage to meet the minimum state requirements. The form must be provided to the CA DMV by a state-approved insurance company.

SR22 Insurance Cost in Butte County, California
The SR22 certificate costs very little. In fact, it costs only the amount of the fee that the insurance agency charges for filing it. However, if you file an SR22 with your current carrier, the increased insurance premium can be very expensive, sometimes three to five times the amount of regular insurance policies. Our customers are usually relieved to find that we can offer insurance for our SR22 customers at considerably lower rates than your regular insurance company.

Filing your SR22 is not a long process. We're here to help you get the coverage you need so you can start driving immediately. Your Breathe Easy Insurance Solutions agent takes care of filing the form for you very quickly. When we activate your policy, your SR22 form is electronically filed.

After your SR22 is filed, you must keep it active with the State of California for no less than three years. The time length may be longer, depending upon the court decision you received. During the period of your SR22 requirement, you must not allow your insurance premiums to go unpaid. Your insurance provider is required by law to report any lapse in coverage. This usually automatically prompts the DMV to suspend driving privileges. You will then need to pay your premiums up to date and have the SR22 re-filed with the DMV. Then, you must go to a DMV office to pay a fee for reinstatement of your driving privileges.
