Simply stated, the SR-22 is a certificate that provides proof of car insurance. It is also referred to as a Certificate of Financial Responsibility. NH Drivers can apply for insurance and once approved can receive an SR-22 from an insurance agent.
There are several reasons why a driver may be ordered by NH DMV to buy auto insurance, including DWI Conviction, driver deemed habitual offender, excessive demerit points or a driver having a motor vehicle accident WITHOUT car insurance.

- DWI - (1st, 2nd, Subsequent, and Aggravated).

- Leaving Scene of Accident.
- Conduct After Accident.
- Subsequent (2nd) offense Reckless Operation.
