How to get an SR-22 with Esurance
Esurance help you navigate the SR-22 process.
Esurance is a subsidiary of Allstate — but unlike its parent company, it operates fully online. Focused on streamlining the process of protecting your most important assets, it offers a suite of insurance policies for cars, boats, RVs and other vehicles. Including helping you file for an SR-22.
How do I get an SR-22 with Esurance?
If you currently have an active car insurance policy with Esurance:
- Contact your local Esurance agent online or by phone during business hours to request the company files an SR-22 for you.
- Esurance will file an SR-22 on your behalf, but it could take up to two weeks to process the form. You’ll also pay $30 or more for the convenience.
- Follow up on the status of your documents with Esurance, especially if your driving privileges are suspended until the SR-22 is filed. You can also confirm whether your SR-22 document is processed by contacting your local DMV.
To help your agent process your request, you’ll need to gather information that includes:
- Your date of birth and Social Security number.
- Your existing Esurance policy number, if you have one.
- Your state of residence and driver’s license number.
- The date your license was suspended.
- The date you anticipate your SR-22 will no longer be required.
- Any applicable information about your conviction.

Compare Esurance to other SR-22 insurance
Will Esurance raise my premiums if I file for an SR-22?
Esurance charges a $30 administration fee to file your SR-22. Your premiums could increase as a result of the conviction on your driving record. Your driving history, state of residence and insurance provider are other factors that affect your insurance premiums.
Call your local Esurance agent to find out more about changes to your policy that can result from filing an SR-22.
Will Esurance cancel my policy if I file for an SR-22?
Possibly — you’ll find providers that won’t renew policyholders who file for an SR-22, but many do.
Esurance doesn’t guarantee to cover drivers who require an SR-22. If Esurance agrees to be your provider while you hold SR-22 insurance, you may see an increase in your premiums.
If Esurance chooses to cancel your policy, you’ll typically receive notice of your policy cancellation or nonrenewable status ahead of time. This gives you time to find another provider without an lapse between policies.
What if I don’t have a car?
It’s possible that your state will require you to file an SR-22 as a non-owner alongside a non-owner car insurance policy.
A non-owner car insurance policy provides coverage for those who don’t own a vehicle but still hold a driver’s license. If you plan to use a car that belongs to someone else, you must purchase a non-owner car insurance policy.
Unfortunately, Esurance doesn’t offer non-owner insurance policies at this time.
