Should I take my 23 yr old daughter off of my insurance? She recently was involved in an accident and has a DUI pending.

Yes, it would be a good idea to remove your daughter from your insurance policy due to her recent DUI and suspended license — both of which would impact your insurance by way of a much higher premium. Find out just how much a DUI can impact your rates in our guide to insurance after a dui.

My son got a DUI, I will be selling the vehicle & removing him from my GEICO policy. Do I need to report it?

If you choose to repair the damage to your son's car using your insurance, you will need to file a claim and tell your insurer what happened. The claim will impact your rates, but removing your son will not impact your rates as much as leaving him on the policy.

If I'm already added to someone's car insurance but I need an SR-22, how would I do that?

It depends how it is marked on his MVR. If it is still an open case and no conviction has been issued you can answer no because during the reporting process it will not show.

Am I required to report my DUI?

Your insurance company will most likely pull your Motor Vehicle Report at your next renewal and most likely see your DUI. Moreover, if your license was suspended, it's likely your DMV will report to your insurance company.

Do I need an FR44

You should be able to reinstate your license if you can pay the reinstatement fee, provide proof of insurance (which is what your FR-44 refers to), and resolving any unpaid fees or dues. An FR-44 is similar to the more commonly requested SR-22 - is it a certificate of financial responsibility that you must file with the state after certain convictions.
