Driver’s license reinstatement program kicks off in Ohio

A new six-month driver’s license reinstatement fee amnesty program kicked off last week that could help thousands of Ohioans, and dozens if not hundreds of Athens County residents, get back on the road after having their licenses suspended.

The program essentially means that people who may have hundreds of dollars in fees relating to the suspension of their driver’s license (as long as that suspension wasn’t the result of a drug, alcohol or deadly weapon-related incident) can apply for relief from those fees.
