“SR-22 insurance isn’t technically insurance at all.
It’s an endorsement that says you’re carrying minimum liability insurance as required by your state.
If your state requires it, you have to file it with the DMV or Secretary of State and keep this document in your vehicle at all times.
If you have an SR-22 endorsement and you let it lapse, you may face consequences, such as:
- suspended registration
- suspended license”

Will the collision coverage from my credit card company apply to my rental car if I don't have collision coverage on my regular auto policy?
I am renting a car this weekend to drive out of state. My personal car is a hunk of junk and I only carry liability coverage on it. I know my Visa card will pay for collision coverage for the rental, but is that still the case if my current auto policy doesn't have collision?
