Default in Payment Suspensions

Explanation:

If you entered into a written Installment Agreement to either prevent suspension or reinstate a suspension for an accident you were involved in and you fail to make the required payments – you will be suspended upon receipt of the notice indicating you are in default.

 

Reinstatement Requirements:

1. Deposit security in amount determined, which is specified on the Notice of Suspension sent to you. Payment of the security deposit needs to be in the form of a cashier’s check, bank draft, money order made payable to the Department of Motor Vehicles. This office does not accept personal or business account checks.

2. If you have made restitution in full - submit a Release Form for Property Damage/Injury to include all damages and/or injuries incurred in the accident. If the release was entered into with the other parties insurance company or attorney, it will need to include their representative’s signature, the title of their position, and indicate the name of the individual(s) they represent. All signatures are required to be either notarized or witnessed by a non-interested party.

 

Other release forms that are available:

Release Form for Parent/Guardian of a Minor – to be used when there is an injury to a minor child

Release Form for No Claims Filed – to be used when the other party(s) are not requiring you to make restitution

Release Form for One/Two Year Affidavit – to be used when it has been at least one (1) year since the date of suspension and no judgments have been filed in court against you for the accident

3. If you are making payment to the other party – submit a “new” written Installment Agreement Form to include all damages and/or injuries incurred in the accident. The agreement must specify the dollar amount agreed upon, the number of payments to be made, the date payments began and the dollar amount of each payment. If the Agreement/Promissory Note was entered into with the other parties insurance company or attorney, it will need to include their representative’s signature, the title of their position, and indicate the name of the individual(s) they represent. All signatures are required to be either notarized or witnessed by a non-interested party.

3. File proof of future financial responsibility. This is normally provided in the form of a SR-22 Certificate of Insurance.

4. Pay a $50.00 reinstatement fee. Payment must be in the form of a cashier’s check or money order made payable to the Department of Motor Vehicles or online with MasterCard, Visa or Discover. When submitting payment, include identifying information (i.e. name, date of birth, license or social security number and current mailing address). Payment submitted by personal or business checks or not for the required amount will be returned.

 

Exceptions:

If the proof of financial for the accident (i.e. release, agreement, etc.) indicates you made arrangements for restitution prior to the effective date of suspension, the SR-22 Certificate of Insurance and the $50.00 reinstatement fee will not be required.
