Stressing About the Cost of SR22 Insurance? Tips on How to Save

Insurance Blog

Do you have to pay for SR22 insurance and you are curious as to what you can do to lower the rate? You need to have this insurance because you committed a serious crime while behind the wheel, like driving without insurance, recklessly or under the influence. You will have to pay higher rates than normal no matter what, but with these considerations you may be able to get the cost down.

Be Prepared to Pay

To ensure that you aren't going to go without insurance and that your policy will always be paid to cover you because you're a risky driver, the insurance company will require that you pay for the entire policy up front. If you have to pay for 2 years of SR22 insurance they may want you to pay all of it full, and you should get a discount if you pay for 2 years at the same time instead of just one.

Take the Defensive Driving Course

A defenseless driving course will teach you how to watch for other drivers that could end up causing a collision and that could get you into an accident. This type of course is available online through your local DMV or BMV, depending on the state where you live. Take the course and send the information to your insurance provider.

Restrict Your Auto Usage

If you aren't on a restricted license already, minimize the time you drive by car pooling and staying off the roads at a certain time. If you report to your insurance provider that you are no longer making the commute to work, or that you aren't driving past a certain time because of the limitations set by the court, you may be off the roads when accidents are likely to happen and that can lower your rates.

The best thing you can do for yourself is to not get any type of moving violation while you are driving under the SR22 coverage, because you could be at the risk of losing your license and your insurance rates will only go up again. If you don't want to be pay a high insurance rate for years into the future, you'll need to make sure you don't make any serious driving mistakes again, and you should do your best to pay on time.

Auto Insurance:  Even High Risk Drivers Need It

About ten years ago, my auto insurance was cancelled. This took place after one too many accidents. I was now a high risk, and my provider was not willing to keep me on any longer.

Some were not all that great, but others offered benefits that were very close to my old plan. I soon found a provider who would accept my application, and I began to be a little more careful with my driving. If you are having trouble buying auto insurance, let me help. I'll tell you what to look for in a high-risk provider, and how to find the best one in your area. In no time at all, you'll be covered and ready to get back on the road again.
