How Long Will You Need to Have SR-22 Insurance?
Although it’s often referred to as an insurance type, SR-22 is a form that some drivers must file with the state to prove that they have the minimum amount of required liability coverage. In many cases, filing SR-22 is a condition of getting a driver’s license reinstated or re-registering a vehicle in South Dakota after certain convictions or judgments.
Depending on the reason for an SR-22 requirement, you may have to file SR-22 with the state for up to three years from the date you are first eligible for license reinstatement.
