Can I Discharge My Ohio Driver’s License Reinstatement Fees in Bankruptcy?
The suspension of a person’s driver’s license is a very common penalty associated with many different traffic offenses. A license suspension is a burden that can create major inconvenience in every area of your life. If you are about to complete your suspension, you will have to pay a reinstatement fee to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV). Depending on the nature of your initial offense, reinstatement fees can run into the hundreds or thousands of dollars. If you are undergoing a period of severe financial hardship, you may find it impossible to pay these fees.
