What is an SR22?
If you have had your license revoked or suspended, you may be required to file an SR22. An SR22 is a form filed through your auto insurance company that shows the state of Kansas that you carry the mandatory minimum auto insurance. Kansas requires you to maintain an SR22 for one year. Failure to maintain could result in you having your driving privileges revoked again.
