Kansas SR22 Insurance

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.

Who Needs an SR22?

An SR22 filing may be required by Kansas if you are convicted of a major traffic violation. Those violations include:

  • Driving without insurance
  • Driving while under the influence (DUI)
  • Repeated minor traffic violations
  • Reckless driving

Kansas Mandatory Minimum Insurance Liability Coverage

While an SR22 is not a type of insurance, it does prove that you carry the mandatory minimum auto insurance liability coverage. In the state of Kansas, those minimums are:

  • $25,000 for bodily injury per person
  • $50,000 for bodily injury per accident
  • $25,000 for property damage

Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID) Requirements For Kansas

As showcased in the chart above, an ignition interlock device (IID) will be required for your vehicle for a set period of time after a DUI conviction. An IID is a breathalyzer that stops your car from starting if it either detects alcohol on your breath or you fail to give a sample. The time for this requirement varies and can be based on your BAC, age, and previous driving record. It is just one of the many steps you must take to reinstate your driving privileges.
