Who Is Eligible For a Reduced Driver’s License Reinstatement Fee?
Learning more about Ohio BMV reinstatement fee amnesty is a good idea to determine your eligibility. House Bill 336 in Ohio makes it legal to reduce the reinstatement fee on a driver’s license for certain violations. However, the reduction or amnesty only applies to a permit or driver’s license suspension, as it doesn’t include a commercial permit or commercial driver’s license suspension.
Common Reasons for Driver’s License Suspension
You can get your driver’s license suspended in Ohio due to several reasons. A few of the most common causes include receiving a DUI/DWI, moving violations, or if you are involved in an accident without insurance. You may even get your license suspended due to unpaid court fees or if you are behind on your child support. Visiting the Ohio BMV website is the easiest way to check the status of your driver’s license.
How to Determine My Eligibility?
The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles determines your eligibility for a reduced fee that’s based on the qualifying offense. Additionally, applicants also need to complete all court-ordered sanctions other than making a payment involving the reinstatement fees. You also need to wait at least 18 months from the suspension ordered by the court to pass to be eligible for a reduced fee. It’s also required for you to provide proof of indigence to qualify for complete amnesty of your reinstatement fees, as House Bill 336 labels “indigent” as anyone participating in the SNAP program.
