Progressive offers SR-22 insurance to drivers classified as “high-risk” by their state. High-risk insurance is often called SR-22 insurance, but SR-22 is actually not a type of coverage, it’s a form verifying that you have met the state’s minimum requirements for car insurance coverage.
In most states, Progressive will electronically file your SR-22 document with the department of motor vehicles immediately after you purchase your policy unless they are required by state law to file by mail. The filing fee is usually around $25.
When You Might Need Progressive SR-22 Insurance
Most drivers do not need an SR-22. It’s most commonly required if you were driving without insurance or a license, or if you were convicted of a DUI/DWI. In states like Florida or Virginia, you might need an FR-44, which is similar but requires more coverage than an SR-22.
If you do need SR-22 insurance from Progressive, call 866-749-7436 to speak with a Progressive representative. Progressive rates only increase by about 5% nationwide for SR-22 drivers, so it tends to be an affordable option for high-risk insurance compared to other large companies.
