An SR22 form is a certificate of financial responsibility. Some states require certain drivers (e.g., those convicted of DUI / DWI) to file an SR22 form with their DMV. In order to get an SR22 form, one would have to purchase SR22 insurance. If one did not own a vehicle, he or she would have to purchase a non-owner SR22 insurance policy.
The State of Delaware hasn't required SR22 filings since 1979, so if you live in Delaware you do not need to worry about SR22 insurance or non-owner SR22 filings.
However, if you live in Delaware, but you get into trouble in another state (e.g., get a DUI), then you may well be required to file an SR22 in that state. If this describes your situation, and you do not own a vehicle, you will need to contact the DMV in the state where the incident happened and ask if you can file a non-owner SR22 insurance certificate. Each state has different laws.
