Countless Ohioans have had to endure their driver’s licenses being suspended for long stretches of time because they have been convicted of certain crimes or traffic offenses. The number one thought that is in the forefront of the mind of someone who has had their driver’s license suspended in Ohio is how to get their license reinstated as soon as possible. It is understandable that you would want your driver’s license reinstated since not having a driver’s license can significantly inhibit your ability to get around to complete normal day-to-day tasks, such as driving yourself to work or running errands.
It is important to know that your driving privileges are not automatically reinstated after the duration of your driver’s license suspension is over. You cannot simply start driving again. Instead, you are required to go through the formal process of having your driver’s license reinstated by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV).
If your driver’s license has been suspended, you can get your driver’s license reinstated through an Ohio BMV office. The requirements for getting your driver’s license reinstated depend on why your driver’s license was suspended in the first place. An experienced driver’s license reinstatement lawyer can help you figure out what you need to do in order to get your driver’s license reinstated straight away. Below are a few examples of reinstatement requirements that must be met before a driver can have his or her driver’s license back:
You are required to complete several of the above identified reinstatement requirements in order to get your driver’s license back, but again, which requirements you must complete depends on why your license was suspended in the first place.
If you are unable to afford your reinstatement fee, you may be eligible for a payment plan option that allows you to have your driving privileges back while you pay off your reinstatement fee at a minimum rate of $50 per month. Eligibility for the repayment plan requires that you owe at least $150 in reinstatement fees and that you have met all of your other reinstatement requirements, such as providing proof of insurance. You cannot have any pending suspensions and must not already have a court-ordered fee payment plan. You must apply for the reinstatement fee payment plan and submit $50, which will go towards your reinstatement fee regardless of whether you are approved for the repayment plan or not.
When your driver’s license suspension period is over, you can seek to have your driver’s license reinstated through the BMV. The reason why your driver’s license was suspended will have an impact on the requirements that you must complete before you can have your driver’s license reinstated.
