An SR-22 or a certificate of insurance is required by most state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offices for “high-risk“ insurance policies. The DMV requires an SR-22 from a driver to reinstate his or her driving privileges if they previously have had a car accident or conviction of another traffic-related offense, the most common being a DUI (driving under the influence).

In the state of Texas, SR-22 insurance is required for certain drivers who have been convicted of traffic violations or who have been involved in at-fault accidents. SR-22 insurance in Texas is a type of liability insurance that provides proof to the state that you are financially responsible for damages that may be caused while you are driving.
If you are required to have SR-22 insurance, you will need to maintain it for a period of two years from the date of your conviction. If you allow your insurance policy to lapse during this time, your driver’s license will be suspended.
