If you are convicted of an OWI related offense and become eligible for an occupational license, you will need to obtain an SR-22 certificate showing "proof of financial responsibility" before you go to the DMV. Generally speaking, you will be charged a higher rate by the insurance companies and will have to maintain this coverage for 3 years or more, depending on the offense.

Wisconsin SR-22 Insurance

SR-22 is proof of financial responsibility and must be filed by you or on your behalf by an insurance company that is licensed to do business in the state of Wisconsin. An SR-22 is necessary to reinstate a driver license or occupational license after operating privileges or vehicle registration has been revoked. Likewise, an SR-22 is required to reinstate a license after suspension if the suspension is due to a damage judgment or lack of insurance.

In Wisconsin, the term for holding an SR-22 policy is typically 3 years but does vary depending on the violation. If there is a lapse in coverage of the SR-22 for whatever reason, the Division of Motor Vehicles will immediately suspend the driver's license and possibly further penalize the individual.
