Will 21st Century Insurance file an SR-22?

I have a pretty bad driving record, including an accident that I caused while driving under the influence. I’m now eligible to get my license back and start driving again, except I need to get SR-22 insurance. Will 21st Century Insurance file an SR-22 for me?

Yes, 21st Century Insurance will
file an SR-22
on your behalf if it’s required, but you should know upfront that it will cost you some extra money.
SR-22 insurance
is a certificate proving financial responsibility by a driver. Basically, that means that you, as the driver, are buying and maintaining appropriate insurance coverage. This document is typically sent to your state’s Division of Motor Vehicles and is necessary to keep your license valid.
The amount of time that you’ll need to have an SR-22 filed can vary and should be established in your court sentencing documents.
Because it’s a mandated condition for you to keep driving legally, you have no choice but to get insurance that includes an SR-22 filing. However, you should know it will make your
car insurance
more expensive. Having an SR-22 means you’re a
high-risk driver
, which causes insurance providers to raise rates so they can offset the risk.
