If your license was suspended due to an incident that requires an SR22 be filed by your insurance company, then the insurance company needs to follow up with the DMV about the filing.If you actually had liability insurance at the time required by the DMV, then your insurance company can probably work with the DMV to back date the SR22 as required and then your license will be reinstated back to the date in question.Talk to the insurance company, or your agent, and have them contact DMV to see what they need. This should be a pretty simple correction since the insurance company acknowledges that they had the necessary funds and paperwork from you and they simply failed to file it with DMV.Once the insurance company and DMV work this out, the fine should be dismissed and your license will be reinstated. You should make sure the insurance company follows through with everything and ask for copies for your records.
