What is the SR-22 Certificate?

When you have been convicted of DWI or have had your driving privileges suspended or revoked, you will be required to file for SR-22 insurance with your insurance company which will is then required to send the certificate to the TxDPS. This certificate verifies that you have the minimum liability insurance. Those who have to file for an SR-22 must have a copy of the form with them along with their auto insurance coverage whenever they are driving.

Levels of Surcharges

Annual surcharges for the Driver Responsibility Program last for three years after a conviction:

The surcharges resulting from the Driver Responsibility Program apply to all motorists who have at least six points on their driving records. Unfortunately, if you are convicted DWI, you will likely be paying the surcharge for three years after your conviction—even if you are able to lower the points on your driving record. For those who are below the poverty line, incentive programs might be available.
