Driver's license reinstatement program kicks off in Ohio

A new six-month driver’s license reinstatement fee amnesty program kicked off last week that could help thousands of Ohioans, and dozens if not hundreds of Athens County residents, get back on the road after having their licenses suspended.

The program essentially means that people who may have hundreds of dollars in fees relating to the suspension of their driver’s license (as long as that suspension wasn’t the result of a drug, alcohol or deadly weapon-related incident) can apply for relief from those fees.

According to a release from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles, the program kicked off last Wednesday.

The release explains that in order to be eligible for these reinstatement fee reductions/waivers:

• Applicants must have completed all court-ordered sanctions related to the eligible offense other than the payment of reinstatement fees.

• At least 18 months must have passed since the end of the period of the driver’s license suspension ordered by the court. Those able to provide proof of indigence “will qualify for a complete amnesty of reinstatement fees. “

• Applicants must complete BMV form 2829. People can obtain this form at the BMV Deputy Registrar at the Market on State on East State Street in Athens, or by going online at www.bmv.ohio.gov, or it can be mailed by calling 614-752-7500.
