In the United States, an SR-22 (sometimes referred to as a certificate of insurance)[a] is a vehicle liability insurance document required by most state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offices[b] for "high-risk" insurance policies. A DMV may require an SR-22 from a driver to reinstate his or her driving privileges following an uninsured car accident or conviction of another traffic-related offense, such as a DUI. An SR-22 may be required for three years for conviction of driving without insurance or driving with a suspended license and up to five years for a DUI. If an SR-22 should expire or be canceled, the insurance company is required to issue an SR-26 form, which certifies the cancellation of the policy.
