In Nevada, if your license is suspended due to a DUI arrest, street racing, failing to appear for a traffic court hearing, or for other reasons, you may be required to purchase an SR-22 Proof Of Financial Responsibility from your insurance company. It is a form that is sent from your insurance company to the Nevada DMV to prove that you have the required insurance coverage. Adding an SR-22 to your insurance policy is usually expensive.
If you are required to maintain an SR-22 filing as a condition of your license reinstatement, it must be maintained for 3 years from the date you reinstate your driver license.
If at anytime during the three-year period you fail to maintain the SR-22, your driving privilege will be suspended. This may result in starting the three-year requirement again. There is no statute of limitations on the SR-22 requirement. The continuous three-year requirement begins from the date you reinstate your driver’s license regardless of how long you have been in suspension or when you purchased the coverage.
The DMV does not notify drivers of when they are eligible to remove the SR-22 filing. If you are unsure of the date, please contact the DMV. If you do not maintain coverage continuously during the required period, your insurance company will notify the DMV by sending a Form SR-26. The DMV will suspend your license and send notification of this to you by certified mail. The required period of coverage will begin over again.
