Getting Back Your Driver’s License
Filing bankruptcy can reinstate a suspended drivers license, due to court fines or tickets. Through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, a plan is created where an individual pays a portion to all of their creditors and his or her suspended driver’s license is reinstated. Speeding tickets and some court fines can be dischargeable through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Any court fines steaming from DUI must be paid in full through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The filing of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy should reinstate your drivers license by sending notice to the Department of Licensing of your filing. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy does not discharge these types of debts, nor does it reinstate your license.
