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

"SR22 insurance" is a Certificate of Financial Responsibility. It proves to the State of Nevada that you have liability insurance. (Click here to see a sample SR22 form.) When you buy SR22 insurance, your insurance company will provide this SR22 certificate.

If you get a DUI in Nevada, you will need to buy SR22 insurance in order to get your driver's license back.

A Nevada SR22 insurance requirement lasts for 3 years from the date that you reinstate your driver's license. If your SR22 insurance lapses for any reason during this time, your insurance company will notify the DMV by filing an SR26 form, and your driver's license will be suspended. You would then have to start your 3 year SR22 requirement over again.
