After a DWI, your license is suspended for a minimum of 30 days. If you wish to reinstate your license with the Texas Department of Public Safety, you will be required to pay a reinstatement fee and submit an SR-22 form.
The SR-22 form, otherwise known as the Financial Responsibility Form is an endorsement attached to an existing automobile insurance policy that provides the DPS with proof that you have the minimum required insurance to legally drive in Texas.
For some, their ability to drive hinges on the DPS having an SR-22 on record. The most common reasons the DPS could require you to get an SR-22 are:

Meaning, if four people are injured for a total of $100,000 in medical bills, the policy will only pay $60,000 of those.
