It’s important to note that many insurers won’t provide non-owner policies to people with a car in their household, even if the vehicle is registered under a different name. So if you live with a spouse, family member, or even a roommate who owns a car, you might not be eligible. In addition, if you have a non-owner policy and fail to switch to an owner policy when you buy a car, the insurer will likely deny any claims that you file.
How Non-Owner SR-22 Insurance Works
Non-owner insurance includes liability coverage by default, although some companies allow drivers to add more coverage as well. Non-owner policies are also secondary coverage, which means that if you crash a borrowed car, the owner’s insurance will pay first. Then, your non-owner policy will kick in to cover any leftover balance.
Standard non-owner insurance policies are generally cheaper than insurance with a car, particularly since non-owners drive much less frequently. However, drivers who need an SR-22 usually pay more than drivers who don’t need one, since an SR-22 indicates increased risk for the insurer.
Where to Get Non-Owner SR-22 Insurance
Like any other insurance policy, you should always compare quotes when looking for non-owner SR-22 insurance. Insurers usually offer quotes for non-owner policies over the phone, so be prepared to call several companies. By getting multiple quotes, you can ensure that you have sufficient coverage for your needs at the lowest price.
If you can’t find a non-owner policy through a regular insurer, nonstandard insurance companies that specialize in high-risk drivers could be a good option.

The exact cost of a non-owner SR-22 policy depends on where the driver lives and how much car insurance they’re required to have. But because non-owner SR-22 insurance applies only to drivers, and not their cars too, it generally costs less than regular SR-22 coverage.
How Non-Owner SR-22 Insurance Works
Non-owner SR-22 insurance is coverage for drivers who do not own a car but are required by their state to file an SR-22 as verification of insurance. Most states require drivers to file an SR-22 after they are convicted of a major moving violation, such as DUI or reckless driving. This applies even if you don’t own a car, which is where non-owner SR-22 insurance comes in handy.
You will not be eligible for non-owner SR-22 insurance if anyone in your household owns a car. If you purchase a non-owner SR-22 policy, you will only need it for 3-5 years, depending on your state. Those who do not plan on driving in the future can drop their coverage once they are no longer required to have an SR-22 on file.
