How to acquire an SR-22 in North Dakota

For currently insured drivers:

If you currently have auto insurance, requesting an SR-22 is straightforward. Call your insurance company ask them to file an SR-22 request on your behalf. If your current car insurance company won't request a certificate, you should look for a new auto insurance company.

Currently uninsured?

When filing for a new policy, you might be saddled with an up-front fee to have your prospective insurer file an SR-22 request for you and to cover your high-risk driving profile. Needing an SR-22 could disqualify you from being insured by some carriers, while others will sell you a policy.

If you don't own a vehicle:

Not owning a vehicle makes it tougher to get an SR-22, as you'll need proof of insurance to get the certificate. If you don't own a car, you should buy a non-owners auto insurance policy before requesting an SR-22. Non-owners car insurance is usually cheaper than a standard policy since it won’t provide protection for material damages sustained by your vehicle.
