Non-owner SR-22 car insurance is an affordable option if you’re required to have car insurance to have your license reinstated. This liability-only coverage meets state minimums, so you can drive without worrying about losing your license again.
Non-owner SR-22 insurance is less expensive than regular SR-22 insurance, but it’s still more expensive than a regular policy. That’s why it’s so important to shop around to get the best rates.
Jerry can save you time and money by comparing rates from over 50 insurance providers. They’ll help you save on your car insurance—even if you have a spotty driving record and SR-22 requirement.
What is an SR-22 non-owner policy?
A non-owner SR-22 policy—sometimes called an operator or named operator policy—allows you to meet the state’s requirement for carrying insurance if you don’t have a vehicle.
You might be required to carry SR-22 insurance after your license is suspended for a major driving infraction, like a DUI or repeatedly driving without insurance. If that happens, the court may rule that you must carry the minimum insurance required by that state.
An SR-22 is a form that is filed with the state that legally proves that you’re carrying the state minimum insurance. Your insurance company will file the SR-22 form for you once you’ve purchased an insurance policy that meets those minimums.
If the state requires you to have SR-22 insurance, you must carry coverage even if you do not have a vehicle.
A non-owner SR-22 policy will cover you if you’re driving a car that you’ve borrowed or rented. However, it will not cover you if you’re driving a vehicle that belongs to someone you live with. For that, you’d need regular SR-22 insurance.
Key Takeaway: An SR-22 non-owner policy is insurance that allows you to meet a legal requirement to carry the state’s minimum insurance, even if you don’t have a car.

What does non-owner SR-22 insurance cover?
Non-owner SR-22 insurance is liability insurance. It meets the state’s minimum requirements for insurance, so you’ll be protected from getting a ticket or having your license suspended again if you get pulled over.
An SR-22 policy provides minimum coverage. It will protect you from having to pay out-of-pocket expenses to a third party if you’re responsible for an accident.
However, non-owner SR-22 insurance does not include collision coverage. If you cause an accident, you will still be responsible for any damages to the vehicle you’re driving, your property, or yourself. Consider protecting yourself with an insurance policy that provides more than the state’s minimum insurance.
Key Takeaway Non-owner SR-22 insurance will only cover damages to another vehicle if you get into an accident.

What does non-owner SR-22 insurance cost?
