BMV reinstatement fees are fees that are charged by the BMV before a person can have their suspended license reinstated. A person can ask the court to dismiss BMV reinstatement fees so that they do not have to be paid.
Specialized driving privileges are privileges granted by a court that allow a person with a suspended license to legally drive for specific reasons. For example, a person might ask the court for the privilege to be allowed to drive to work.
An individual whose driving privileges have been suspended by the court may ask the court for specialized driving privileges. IC 9-30-16-3 One reason would be to allow for the individual to drive between home and work. IC 9-30-16-3.5 An individual whose driving privileges have been suspended by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles by an administrative action and not by a court order may petition a court for specialized driving privileges. IC 9-30-16-4 Not everyone is eligible. IC 9-30-16-1
More information on suspension and reinstatement of a driver’s license can be found on the BMV website.
