This fact sheet for Virginia drivers provides guidance on how they can go about reinstating driver’s licenses that were suspended for unpaid court debt.
- If your license is suspended solely for unpaid court debt; is not expired; and you still have the physical license, it will automatically become valid with no requirement to pay a reinstatement fee.
- If you are unsure of why your license is suspended, you can go to a DMV office or call the DMV to find out more information.
- Even though the amendment lifts current suspensions and prevents future suspensions, it does not negate the debt that led to those suspensions.
- It’s possible to have more than one type of license suspension at the same time (e.g. DUI and unpaid court debt), and this amendment only affects suspensions for court debt.
