If your Arizona driver's license has been suspended / revoked by the courts for a DUI or an Implied Consent violation, you will need to provide proof of future financial responsibility in order to get your license reinstated. Most people fulfill this requirement by purchasing SR22 insurance. Alternatively, you can deposit $40,000 with the Arizona Office of Treasurer.
If your driver's license has been suspended by the MVD and not by a court, and it is your first suspension, you do not need to provide proof of future financial responsibility. You do not need to file an SR22 form and do not need to buy SR22 insurance.
If you are under an SR22 requirement, and you fail to maintain your SR22 insurance, then your driver's license, registration, and license plates will be suspended until you comply.
Your SR22 insurance must be provided by an insurance company that is licensed to do conduct business in the State of Arizona.

If your driver's license has been suspended due to a DUI or Implied Consent violation, you will need to do the following to get it reinstated:
If your driver's license has been revoked for an Aggravated DUI or subsequent DUI, the MVD will need to "investigate" your driving record. To begin this process, call the MVD and request an investigation packet. The MVD will then review your record and send you a Permission to Apply notice. You will then need to do the following to get your license reinstated:
If the MVD has a photograph of you on file, you can apply for reinstatement by mail or online. If they do not have a photograph, you must apply in person.
If your driver's license has been suspended or revoked for a DUI or Implied Consent violation, you will be ordered to install an ignition interlock device (IID) in your vehicle.
Even if you do not own a vehicle, you still need to comply with the ignition interlock law, so you will need to find a vehicle that you can install an IID in. (Alternatively, you can choose not to reinstate your driving privilege.)
In most cases, an ignition interlock requirement lasts for one year.
