Do You Owe Driver's License Reinstatement Fees?

The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles implemented a driver’s license reinstatement fee debt reduction and waiver program for offenders whose driver’s licenses have been suspended for specific violations. The program only applies to a driver’s license or permit suspension; it does not apply to a commercial driver’s license or permit suspension.

The initial program ended on July 31, 2019. Effective October 17, 2019, the program will resume and applications will be accepted and processed through December 31, 2019.
