License Revocation and SR-22 Insurance

Persons who are accused of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs may lose their driving privileges through license revocation hearings and other legal procedures. In some cases, persons accused of such crimes may be allowed to drive only if they obtain state-approved SR-22 insurance, which typically covers drivers who have been charged with DWI, DUI, driving on a suspended license, or failure to maintain insurance.

If a person fails to obtain or maintain SR-22 insurance coverage, he or she may face serious legal consequences as a result. Individuals who are accused of failing to maintain the proper coverage may need the assistance of an experienced criminal attorney to defend their case. If you would like to know more about license revocation and insurance requirements, contact Austin criminal lawyer Ian Inglis today at (512) 472-1950.

What does SR-22 Insurance Cover?

SR-22 insurance typically provides:

  • Proof from the state that you are legally allowed to operate a vehicle, despite facing criminal charges
  • SR-22 is typically a third-party form that proves that you have insurance coverage
  • The individual who carries SR-22 coverage must usually purchase the minimum amount of coverage to cover collision, comprehensive, liability, and personal injury claims
  • SR-22 coverage may require a significant deposit with the state before the form can be issued to the driver.

Failure to maintain SR-22 coverage if required by law may result in the complete revocation of driving privileges and may even include further penalties.
