  • A DUI conviction can affect you and your family in many ways, including license suspension, fines, higher insurance rates, mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device, and jail time.

 

Will the cost of my car insurance increase after a DUI?  What is SR-22 Insurance?

 

It's possible. The cost of your car insurance will be a decision made by your particular car insurance carrier. You should note, though, that if you are convicted of DUI or if you lose your administrative hearing, you will be required to obtain SR-22 insurance.

SR-22 insurance is required for drivers convicted of a drunk driving or DUI offense.  SR-22 auto insurance can be best described as a type of high risk auto insurance policy that is issued by an insurance company that guarantees the Department of Licensing that the named policy holder has the minimum insurance coverage required of the state. 

This is done through the SR-22 insurance filing that the insurance company files on your behalf.  The Department of Licensing will not reinstate your drivers license without an SR-22 if you are required to maintain one and in most cases you're required to keep an SR-22 on file for a minimum of three years from the date that you are eligible to reinstate your driver's license with the State of Washington.
