What is an SR22, and how long will I need an SR22 on file?

The California “Certificate of Financial Responsibility” or SR22 is required for a three-year probation period. During this time a driver is required to maintain the minimum liability insurance requirements. There are three ways to file the SR22: 1. Motorcycle Policy 2. Car Insurance Policy 3. Non-Owner's Policy. The first two are intended for drivers with the vehicles registered in their name. The non-owner’s policy is intended for a driver who does not own a vehicle and wants to satisfy the DMV or a driver that drives a commercial truck or rents cars often.


Ignition Interlock Device

An Ignition Interlock Device is a device connected to your ignition to measure your blood alcohol level. You will be required to install an IID on your second conviction of a DUI. The court may require you to install an IID for a first time DUI conviction in the pilot counties of Alameda County, Los Angeles County, Sacramento County, and Tulare County. Also, every court has discretion but is not required, to order an IID for a first time DUI conviction. That is why hiring an attorney can be very critical in your defense.


Additional Fees Associated with a DUI

A $125.00 registration fee must be paid to the DMV in order to obtain your restricted license. Also, a $15.00 duplication fee will be administered to cover the cost of reprinting your license.
