Florida SR22 Filing Period

SR22 Florida Add comments

I got a DUI in Florida and I need to file an SR22.  How long do I have to carry the SR22 filing and from what date does the filing period start?

Every state has different SR-22 filing period lengths, but in Florida you are required to file an SR22 for 3 years.  In most cases, the 3 year filing period begins the day you actually file the SR22 certificate, not the day you get the DUI, but this can vary with different situations so you might want to call the Florida DMV and ask them what the official start date of your filing is just in case.

An important thing to remember is that you must not let your SR22 insurance policy lapse at any time during the 3 year period.  If you cancel your SR22 policy or your insurance company terminates your insurance due to non payment, the insurance company must notify the Florida DMV immediately.  If this happens, your license will most likely be suspended again.  If your license is suspended again, you must re-file the SR22 and your 3 year period will start over again from that date, so you should do everything you can to prevent your SR22 insurance from lapsing.
