After my accident, the officer instructed me to pick up and fill out an SR-13. What is an SR-13?

The SR-13 (Safety Responsibility Accident Report) is required by the State of Alabama. The SR-13 should be filed anytime there is property damage greater than $250.00. It should be mailed in within 30 days of the accident.


Will my license be suspended if I do not file the SR-13?

In certain situations, a driver's license will be suspended for failure to file an SR-13. Usually, the person who is at-fault in the accident is the only one to get suspended.


If I am not at fault for the accident then why do I need to file the SR-13?

It is in your best interest to file the SR-13 because the at-fault driver may turn out to be uninsured. The Alabama Department of Public Safety can suspend the at-fault party's license until compensation is received by you or your insurance company from the uninsured. The State can only take this action if an SR-13 has been properly filled out and filed with the department.


My police report is not correct. What can I do?
