Seattle High Risk DUI Insurance

If you are convicted of a DUI within the state of Washington and have your license suspended or revoked you will be required to obtain SR-22 insurance for a minimum of three years after your license is reinstated. SR-22 is vehicle liability insurance for drivers that are considered a high risk to insure.

If you apply for an Occupational/Restricted driver license (ORL) in the state of Washington you will be required to carry SR-22 insurance. If your attorney was effective in getting your initial DUI charge lessened to that of a Reckless Driving charge you are still mandated by state law to carry SR-22 insurance for the same period of three years after your license has been reinstated. If, however, you get the charge lessened further still to a Negligent Driving charge or something of a similar nature or you get the charge of a DUI dismissed completely you will not be required to carry SR-22 insurance. The same is true if you submitted to a breath sample at the scene of a DUI and entered into deferred prosecution.

SR-22 insurance is incredibly expensive. It is recommended that you contact various insurance agencies in order to negotiate the best price possible.
