If you are ever caught driving under the influence of alcohol you can almost be guaranteed that you will experience a hike in your insurance premium.
We understand and are fully aware that getting a DUI is a terrible and extremely inconvenient experience. Not only does it stay on your driving record for 10 years, www.ca.dmv.gov, but you will also have to struggle with finding insurance that will cover you now that you are considered a “high-risk driver”. The fact that you are now considered a “high-risk” driver is exactly why you will be paying more for auto insurance.
When you go to sign up for insurance, the insurance provider will run your Motor Vehicle Report, and this report will show your record and your record will show your DUI. With this conviction, when you go to renew your insurance, the insurance company will be alerted and you will suffer the consequences of a higher premium than you have been used to paying before you were convicted of your DUI.

What’s an SR-22?
When you are convicted of a DUI you will be required to file an SR22 with the state. An SR22 states that you are financially responsible that you carry the proper amount of insurance to operate a vehicle. However, you have to have an SR22 attached to an insurance policy, and you have to keep your insurance active for a minimum for 3 years in order to make that SR22 legitimate. If you let your insurance lapse, your SR22 automatically cancels, and your license will automatically be suspended.
