In the State of North Dakota, if you refuse to take a chemical alcohol test, or if you are convicted of a DUI, you are required to show proof of financial responsibility.
This is usually done by buying North Dakota SR22 insurance. SR22 insurance is simply liability insurance, with a catch. The catch is that this policy requires your insurance company to file an SR22 form with the North Dakota DOT. This form proves to the State that you are in fact insured. If, for any reason, you become uninsured, the SR22 policy requires your insurance company to notify the State by filing an SR26 form.
In short, SR22 insurance provides the State with an easy way to keep an eye on "high-risk drivers."
When faced with an SR22 requirement, many drivers call their current insurance provider and simply ask for an SR22 rider, but this usually costs the drivers more in the long run.
