What would happen if you got caught driving without an SR-22 when your state requires it?

What happens if you get caught driving without an SR-22 when it's required by your state? I need to get an SR-22 endorsement after getting in a few accidents over the past year but I don't want to pay for it needlessly.

“If your state requires you to get an SR-22 but you fail to get one, you’re looking at numerous legal and financial repercussions.
If you’re caught without an SR-22, you might:
  • Have your registration suspended
  • Incur fines up to $500
  • Have your license revoked (and you might have to wait months or even a year for it to be reinstated)
Most SR-22 filings are only about $25 depending on the state, so getting one is a no-brainer compared to what will happen if you don’t get it. You’ll also need up-to-date car insurance.”
