What would happen if I decide not to get an SR-22 endorsement for my auto insurance?

What are the consequences if I don't get an SR-22? I want to insure my car, but I need an SR-22 as required by law. I'm worried that an SR-22 will raise my rates exponentially.

“If your state requires an SR-22 but you don’t file for one, you’re asking for trouble.
In most cases, your license and registration will be suspended until you get the required car insurance. This may come with additional fees.
SR-22s are only about $25, so there’s no reason not to get one. If you can’t afford it, you probably can’t afford to drive a car at this present moment.”
