“If your license was suspended or restricted following numerous at-fault accidents or a DUI, you’re going to need an SR-22 in California.
Almost any time that you have to have your license reinstated, you’re going to need an SR-22, so be prepared for the fees for filing. You’ll also see an average yearly cost increase of around $3,900 for full coverage car insurance with an SR-22.”

Can I get an SR-22 if I don't currently own a car?
Is it possible to get an SR-22 without a car? I got a DUI over a year ago and I can now drive again after my license was reinstated. Because my car was totaled, I don't currently own a vehicle.
