Auto insurance is generally expensive for any driver. If you have any questionable driving counts against you on your record, you may find your insurance rates are higher than normal. This car insurance provider offers policy discounts even if you have the SR-22 form. Typically, car insurance discounts with Esurance include the Fast 5 discount, multiple-policy discount, paid-in-full discount, Switch-n-Save discount and even a discount when you purchase your homeowners and your automobile insurance on the same policy. The paid-in-full discount can save you up to 10 percent.
The company also offers a DriveSense discount, which requires you to install a small device in your car. The device records how you drive and lowers your premiums if you're a careful driver.

The company states it won't raise the price beyond what you'd normally pay, regardless of your driving habits.
Most states require you to have continuous coverage for up to three years while you need the SR-22, and many states require to you have the SR-22 form whether you drive or not.
