Connecticut Non Owner SR22 Insurance Information

DUI laws and penalties, fines, license suspension, sr22 filing

"SR22 insurance" is a nickname given to an auto liability insurance policy that requires an insurance company to file a certificate of financial responsibility (SR22 form) with a state's DMV.

Many states require certain "trouble" drivers to file an SR22 form with the DMV, to prove that, in the event of a future accident, they will have liability insurance.

If a person is required to file an SR22 form, but does not own a vehicle, he or she will be required to purchase what is known as "non-owner SR22 insurance."

Connecticut and SR22 Insurance:

The State of Connecticut does not require an SR22 filing for any reason, so there is no reason to worry about non-owner SR22 insurance in Connecticut.

However, if you live in Connecticut and get into trouble (such as a DUI / DWI) in another state, that state may require you to file an SR22 there, and in that case, you would need to purchase SR22 insurance (and if you don’t own a vehicle, you would likely need to purchase a non-owner SR22 policy). In this situation, you should call the DMV in the state where the DUI took place.
