Three things to know about the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles Reinstatement Fee Amnesty Initiative:
1. You can apply for a reduction online - visit the Ohio BMV to Apply for Reinstatement Fee Amnesty Online. Or pick up an application form (learn more about the application) from any BMV location - find the BMV location closest to you.
2. The initial program ended on July 31, 2019 and is currently suspended through October 16, 2019. Effective October 17, 2019, the program will resume and applications will be accepted and processed through December 31, 2019.
3. Consider applying for a waiver first, before requesting a reduction because once you receive a reduction in fees, you are disqualified from receiving a waiver.
