Chapter 10, Section B:
Reinstatement Requirements


Revised July 18, 2008


 

Reinstatement Requirements

MR1 – If the suspension is due to misrepresentation (MR) and the suspension end date is prior to the current date, then you may reinstate if you have collected all of the required identification and residency documents. The suspension period is generally one year. If it is longer, contact Field Services

FR1 suspensions require proof of liability insurance. The insurance policy must be current and the driver must be listed on the policy. All FR1’s must have a letter of release from the attorney who issued the judgment. Acceptable forms are the release from the attorney or a Satisfaction of Judgment. These documents must be original or certified copies, dated within 30 days, and the driver must be named on the release. Exception - Statute of Limitations:  if the action is over 14 years old, no release is required.

FR2 suspensions require proof of liability insurance. The insurance policy must be current and the driver must be listed on policy. FR2 suspensions must be active for at least one year. If the suspension has been activated within the last year (from suspension begin date) a letter of release is required. If the suspension has been active for over one year, no release is required -- only proof of insurance.

Bankruptcy Cases

  • Driver must provide Motor Vehicle Division with a copy of “Petition for Bankruptcy”. The driver must be named as the petitioner and the petition must have court endorsement.
  • Driver must provide Motor Vehicle Division with a copy of “Schedule F” of the petition. The petition must have been filed after judgment was rendered against the driver, and the plaintiff in the case must be listed as a creditor.
  • Bankruptcy documents will replace payment agreement, satisfaction of judgment, or letter of release. Proof of Insurance still applies.
