Average SR-22 costs in Wyoming

Insurance with an SR-22 requirement in Wyoming is often pricey. This isn't a direct result of the SR-22 itself — typical filing fees are $15 to $35 — but a product of the insurance premium increases triggered by the driving citation that prompted the SR-22 in the first place.

How to get an SR-22 in Wyoming

If you have auto insurance

If you already have auto insurance, getting an SR-22 is straightforward. Phone your insurer and request that the company file a SR-22 request on your behalf. If your current insurer isn’t willing to request an SR-22 certificate, you'll need to look for a new insurer.

Uninsured drivers

When filing for car insurance, you might need to pay extra to cover the SR-22 request and to account for your less-than-optimal insurance profile. Needing an SR-22 may disqualify you from purchasing insurance from some carriers, while others would be happy to cover you.

Don't own a car?

Needing an SR-22 might disqualify you from purchasing insurance from some companies, while others would be happy to sell you a policy.

For drivers without a vehicle

Not owning a vehicle makes it more difficult to get an SR-22, as you will need to furnish proof of insurance to receive the certificate. If you don't own a car, you should apply for a non-owners policy before requesting an SR-22. Non-owners car insurance is often less expensive than standard coverage since it won’t provide protection for physical damage to your vehicle.
