Columbus Traffic Conviction Resulting in Suspended Drivers License

Learn about Ohio drivers license suspension laws and how to reinstate your license. Call the Columbus BMV license reinstatement lawyers with LHA at (614) 500-3836.

If you have been convicted of a traffic infraction in Ohio, the court may suspend your driver’s license under Ohio Revised Code Sections 4510.037 through 4510.038. The length of suspension is typically determined by the court. You can, however, appeal the conviction. To do this, you will need to contact the court. If the court chooses, it may grant you limited driving privileges or terminate the suspension before its ending date. A journal entry bearing the court seal must be forwarded to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) indicating the action the court took before the BMV changes its records and permits you to drive again.

Typically the reinstatement requirements are as follows:

  • Serve the length of the suspension
  • Pay the reinstatement fee, which is required if the suspension is longer than 89 days and the offense date is 10/01/97 or later

If you are considering appealing your driver’s license suspension, we recommend that you hire an experienced Columbus traffic lawyer to handle your case and fight for your driving rights.
