NEBRASKA SR22 INSURANCE
The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles requires specific drivers to file an SR-22 certificate of insurance indicating that you have proof of financial responsibility. Even if you do not own a vehicle, you must purchase a non-owner or operator policy under Nebraska law if you receive a license suspension or revocation related to a "court conviction, accumulation of points or some other administrative action."
Under most circumstances, you must maintain the SR-22 filing for a minimum of three (3) years from the date eligible for reinstatement. The most common reason a person must file an SR22 certificate of insurance (high-risk insurance) is for a license suspension resulting from a driving under the influence (DUI) arrest. Montana, however, also requires an SR22 filing for license suspensions related to an accumulation of 12 or more points on your driving record within a two (2) year period, a court conviction for no proof of insurance, court-ordered revocations, unsatisfied judgments, and as a condition of obtaining certain permits such as an Ignition Interlock Permit.
