Delaware is one of six states that do not require SR-22 insurance.  One of the most common reasons that a person must file an SR-22 insurance certificate is following a license suspension for driving under the influence.  Under Delaware law, in-state drivers must participate in the ignition interlock device program in order to have your driving privileges reinstated. While there are no SR-22 requirements, all drivers must carry minimum liability insurance coverage.  In Delaware the minimum required coverage is:

  • $25,000 bodily injury protection to one person
  • $50,000 total bodily injury protection
  • $10,000 property damage

If you reside outside of Delaware, you may be required to file an SR-22 insurance certificate to get your license reinstated.
