DUI? You Can Still Get Covered
If you’ve been caught drinking and driving, you were probably charged with a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) offense. This is a mistake that can follow you for several years and make getting insurance more difficult and more expensive.
The good news is that if you are committed to being a safe driver, you can still get car insurance after a DUI. Although you will be marked by insurance companies as a “high-risk driver,” there are plenty of ways to get coverage—and Cheap’nEasy Auto Insurance is one great way.
After a DUI/DWI conviction, you’ll likely be required by your state to carry SR-22 certification to drive again. SR-22 insurance coverage is a special type of coverage for people who have certain high-risk factors, such as having too many tickets, being a driver in an at-fault accident without valid insurance, and DUI/DWI.
If you were insured at the time of your DUI/DWI, you current car insurance company will likely drop your coverage at your next renewal. Or they may significantly increase your rates for the next several years.
You can get new car insurance by telling the provider that you need SR-22 certification. You and the insurance company will fill out the SR-22, which will be kept on file with your state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for as long as your state requires, usually three years.
