An SR-22 is a state-issued form verifying that a driver is carrying the minimum amount of car insurance coverage required by the state after they are convicted of a serious violation like DUI or reckless driving. Because an SR-22 designates the policyholder as high-risk, their insurance premium goes up while it's on file with the state. Drivers in South Carolina who need to file an SR-22 will also lose any discount related to good driving that they may have previously qualified for.
The effect of an SR-22 on the cost of insurance is only temporary, though. In South Carolina, drivers only need to have their SR-22 on file for 3 years. After that, the driver's premium will start to go back down, assuming they drive responsibly.
