The Commonwealth of Virginia requires certain drivers to file financial responsibility certifications. Sometimes they require the more common SR22 financial responsibility certification, and sometimes they require the less common FR44 financial responsibility certification.
In the case of alcohol-related driving convictions, e.g., DUI, Virginia requires FR44 financial responsibility insurance.
FR44 insurance is a liability insurance with the following coverage limits:
When you buy a Virginia FR44 insurance policy, your insurance company will provide an FR44 certificate, which needs to be filed with the DMV. If possible, ask your insurance company to file the FR44 electronically for you. This will allow the FR44 to be processed faster.
This FR44 form proves to the DMV that you have liability insurance. The FR44 policy requires your insurance company to notify the DMV if something happens to change that, if for some reason, you no longer have insurance. You do not want this to happen!
Your FR44 certificate must be provided by an insurance company that is licensed to do business in Virginia.
