Insurance with an SR-22 in Indiana | The Zebra

If you need an SR-22 to get an auto insurance policy in Indiana, don't worry. This relatively common legal requirement is triggered by a driving violation like a DUI, a ticket for driving without proof of insurance, an at-fault collision with substantial property damage, driving with a suspended license, or collecting too many points on your license.

Finding cheap car insurance with a SR-22 in Indiana might not be easy, but it could pay off. We explored how much a SR-22 certificate costs in Indiana and how to request one — let’s dive in.


How much does an SR-22 cost in Indiana?

Insurance after an SR-22 in Indiana will probably be costly. This isn't a direct result of the SR-22 itself — filing fees could be as cheap as $15 to $35 — but because of the insurance premium increases triggered by the offense that necessitated the SR-22.

Insurance companies charge risky drivers more expensive rates because of the increased chance of having to pay out a claim after a collision. The rate increase you could face will depend on the severity and number of citations — below are average car insurance rates for motorists with SR-22s in Indiana.

How to get an SR-22 in Indiana


Already insured

If you currently have auto insurance, obtaining an SR-22 shouldn't be too difficult. Just call your car insurance company ask the company to file a SR-22 request on your behalf. If your current insurance company won't file for an SR-22, you should shop around for a new insurance company.

Currently uninsured?

When filing for car insurance, you may need to pay extra to cover the cost of the SR-22 request form and your high-risk driving profile. Needing an SR-22 certification might disqualify you from being insured by some carriers, while others would be happy to sell you a policy.

For drivers who don’t own a vehicle

If you don't own a vehicle, getting an SR-22 can be difficult, as you'll need to show proof of insurance to obtain the document. If you don't own a vehicle, you should get a non-owners policy before requesting a certificate. Non-owners car insurance is typically cheaper than a standard policy since it doesn't insure against physical damage to your car.
