San Mateo County SR22 Insurance
Being convicted of a DUI in San Mateo can have serious consequences. If you have been convicted of a DUI, you may have had your drivers license suspended or revoked.

What is SR22 Insurance and Why Do San Mateo DUI Offenders Need It?
What many people call SR22 insurance is not really insurance at all. An SR22 is a certificate of financial responsibility that accompanies a state-approved insurance policy. The certificate is filed with the state’s DMV by the insurance company that holds the drivers insurance policy. The certificate must be maintained on file with the DMV for a specific period of time. That period of time is usually three years, but the court may require a driver to maintain the filing for up to five years. If the insurance policy is canceled or expires during the required filing period, the insurance carrier is required by law to report the lapse and the driver’s license is automatically suspended.
