About SR22 Peoria
Our Home Office is located in beautiful downtown Peoria, Illinois. Since 1988, we have been providing auto insurance to Illinois residents. When we first opened our doors very few agencies in town offered policies that provided the SR22 Filing. Seeing that need, we focused on finding carriers that could insure hard to place auto risks. Making sure a person needing an SR22 filing with a DWI or multiple accidents/ violations could find coverage and at an affordable price.
In the old days we manually typed the “PINK” Illinois SR22 Filing Form on an old Royal typewriter and mailed it to Springfield. Many clients would drive directly from our office, down to Springfield with the filing in their hand! Wow, how things have changed since then! Most filings are sent electronically now from the carrier to Springfield directly and show up in their database in three to five business days.
On January 25th 2000 we created the domain SR22Illinois.com. It has helped thousands of Illinois residents obtain SR22 filings accurately and fast. We were on the ground floor when Illinois started using the filings as a way to monitor Illinois drivers. We are the largest writer of SR22 in Peoria, Illinois.
SR22 Insurance Illinois
In Illinois the Financial Responsibility Section of the Secretary of State in Springfield regulates and monitors the SR22 filing certificates. To start you need to contact an agent who has carriers that are authorized to attach SR22 filings to auto insurance policies written in Illinois.
After you have received a quote, accept the offer and make payment the agent will electronically submit the application with the SR22 certificate to the carrier. The agent will give the insured a policy with a copy of the filing attached. Most insurance companies will electronically send the SR22 certificate directly to the Secretary of State in Springfield. The Illinois Financial Responsibility Section will show this transaction in their database in three to five business days.
SR22 filings can be required anywhere from 12 months to 36 months depending on the severity of the infraction. If the insurance policy expires or is cancelled the insurance company will notify the Financial Responsibility Section. At this point the Secretary of State will suspend the driving privileges by issuing a SR26 Cancellation Certificate. The insured can usually start the SR22 filing by submitting payment again to the agent. The policy would have to be reinstated or rewritten and the filing processed again.
The SR22 Filing Certificate is issued in one of the following:
- Operator’s Certificate – This policy covers the motorist in the operation of any non-owned vehicle. If the motorist does not own a vehicle, the financial responsibility requirement can be met through the Operator’s Certificate.
- Owner’s Certificate – This policy covers vehicles owned by the driver. The type of vehicle must be listed on the SR-22 or may be issued for “All owned vehicle”.
- Operators-Owners Certificate – This certificate covers all vehicles owned or non-owned by the driver.
