      When would I have to file an SR-22 in Arkansas?

      Your state DMV will let you know if you need to file an SR-22. You might have to file an SR-22 in Arkansas if:

      • You’re convicted for DUI or reckless driving
      • You’re involved in multiple accidents
      • You’re caught driving without insurance

      How does an SR-22 in Arkansas affect my car insurance rates?

      Keep your SR-22 updated to avoid longer and more costly penalties. A lapse or non-renewal could cost you time and money.

      SR-22s are often required after a driving conviction, such as driving without insurance or a DUI. After such a conviction, you’re considered a “high risk” driver by Arkansas and most providers — which typically results in higher insurance rates. Still, you’ll find providers out there that specialize in high-risk drivers.

      Talk to your provider about how much you can expect your rates to increase.

      How long will I need an SR-22 in Arkansas?

      Make sure you understand your role in maintaining your insurance and your SR-22.

      In Arkansas, the typical amount of time you may be required to keep an SR-22 on file is three years, depending on your conviction.

      Can I get nonowner SR-22 insurance in Arkansas?

      If you don’t own a car and you still want to drive, you’ll need an SR-22. Ask you insurance provider about non-owner or an operator insurance policy.

      Do I need an SR-22 in Arkansas if I’m from another state?

      If you have an SR-22 from another state, you’ll have to maintain it while driving in Arkansas. It’s likely sufficient in Arkansas, but verify coverage with Arkansas Driver Services and your insurer.
