BMV Amnesty Program Paves Cheaper Path to Drivers License Reinstatement
Would you like to get your Indiana driver’s license reinstated at a huge discount? Under a new Indiana law, if you owe unpaid tickets, fines or BMV reinstatement fees, you can petition a court to cut the fees in half. To be eligible, the petition must be filed in 2020 and the relief only applies to violations that occurred before January 1, 2019.
What fees can be reduced in the BMV Amnesty Program?
You can receive a 50% reduction in costs, fines and fees for the following:
Unpaid infraction tickets, such as speeding tickets. The infraction must have been committed before January 1, 2019
Driving privileges reinstatement fees, if your license was suspended prior to January 1, 2019
Court costs, administrative fees, late fees, or other fees resulting from an unpaid judgment or driving privileges reinstatement fee.
You are not eligible if you have an outstanding arrest warrant, are delinquent on a child support arrearage over the last six months or have failed to pay restitution to a victim.
How can the Indiana BMV Amnesty Program Help with Specialized Driving Privileges?
If your license is suspended, including as a habitual traffic offender, the cost to get back on the road can be significantly reduced in 2020. When a court grants specialized driving privileges, you still have to pay off all unpaid reinstatement fees and judgments before you can drive. You can now petition to reduce the outstanding fees by half. Our attorneys can represent you in petitioning for specialized driving at the same time we seek to reduce your reinstatement fees.
