Have you been pulled over or recently been in an accident? Were you missing the proper paperwork and have you received a suspension?
The noncompliance suspension is from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles and handed out when a driver does not show proper proof of insurance. This can happen at the time of a traffic stop or accident. The suspension varies based on the number of offenses you have and not meeting the BMV reinstatement requirements.
If you do not have an Ohio BMV insurance verification, keep reading to find how to get verified. Learn how to avoid receiving future violations on the non-compliance suspension.
Reasons You Receive a Noncompliance Suspension
If you have received a noncompliance suspension, you failed to show that you have proof of insurance. In Ohio, insurance verification is mandatory to cover the death or injury while in a vehicle. You will receive a suspension in either one of two ways.
1. A routine traffic stop or violation requires you to show a license, registration, and proof of insurance. If you have been pulled over by an Ohio state police officer and do not have proof of insurance, you will receive a noncompliance suspension.
2. If you are in an accident and do not have your paperwork to show your proof of insurance, you will also receive a noncompliance suspension in Ohio.
Noncompliance suspensions can be nuisance; luckily, there is a simple license reinstatement process.
Getting Reinstated From a Noncompliance Suspension in Ohio
If you have received a noncompliance suspension by the Ohio BMV, you can get reinstated. The length of time for the suspension depends on the number of offenses. This varies for first, second, and third-time offenders.
The suspension will stand until the proper paperwork and proof of coverage, from the time of the accident, is submitted to the BMV. In certain offenses, a reinstatement fee will need to be paid, ranging from $100-$600. If you are in need of Limited Driving Privileges, a judge must be petitioned, who may grant a permit for specific dates and times.
Here are the Ohio BMV reinstatement requirements:
First-time offenders receiving this suspension will have to carry a certificate of insurance for three years. First-time offenders will also have to pay a reinstatement fee. For limited driving privileges, there is no need to wait, only file an SR-22, and pay a $100 reinstatement fee.
If you receive a noncompliance suspension for a second time within five years, you must serve a one-year suspension. Along with the one-year suspension, offenders will have to carry a certificate of insurance for up to five years. Like with the first-time offense, any offenders will have to pay the reinstatement fee, but with a raised fee of $300. For the limited driving privileges, wait until after 15 days from the suspension.
If an offender is then caught a third time, the offender will have to serve a two-year suspension. Like second-time offenders, third-time offenders will also have to carry the certificate of insurance for up to 5 years. These offenders will also have to pay the reinstatement fee, increased to $600. For the limited driving privileges, wait until after 30 days from the suspension to petition.
