Second DUI in Columbus Resulting in Suspended License

Ohio drivers license suspended? Get your license reinstated through the BMV. Call the Columbus license reinstatement attorneys with LHA at (614) 500-3836. Call LHA at (614) 500-3836.

Under Ohio Revised Code Section 4511.19, if you have been convicted of operating a motor vehicle with a prohibited blood alcohol concentration (BAC) or drug of abuse and you have at least one prior OVI conviction within the last six (6) years, the Court will determine a length of driver’s license suspension. (If the Court does not assess a suspension period, no reinstatement fee will be required.)

It is possible to file an appeal with the court regarding any aspect of the trial or suspension, though it does not stay the driver’s license suspension or revocation. It remains effective during the appeal period under Ohio Revised Code Section 4507.16 (B5).

You can file a petition for limited driving privileges in the municipal, county, mayor’s or in the case of a minor, juvenile court that has jurisdiction over the place you were arrested. Limited driving privileges, if granted, will allow you to drive to and from work, school, or other agreed-upon locations.

In order to have your driver’s license reinstated after a second DUI in Ohio, you will need to do the following:

  • Serve the suspension period.
  • Pay the reinstatement fee. You can check out the reinstatement fee list for the required fee amount.
  • Show proof of insurance by forwarding the proper documentation to:

    Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles
    Attn: RE Fee
    P.O. Box 16520
    Columbus, OH 43216-6520
