The Ohio Department of Public Safety, Bureau of Motor Vehicles, will conduct a public hearing for the
purpose of soliciting comments on the following proposed change to Chapter 4501:1-1, "Driver
Licenses," of the Ohio Administrative Code:
Adoption: 4501:1-1-45 (Bureau of motor vehicles fee installment plan) – This rule is being filed to implement statutory changes set forth in SB337, 129th General Assembly, which permits the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to implement a fee installment plan as an option for persons to pay reinstatement fees.
This rule establishes provisions to permit persons who owe a minimum of $150 in reinstatement fees to
pay fees in regular, scheduled installments, if all other reinstatement requirements have been met. Once
a person is approved for the fee installment plan, the person's driving status will be recorded as "valid,"
provided that the person's driver's license is not otherwise suspended or expired. The rule also
establishes those reasons for which the Registrar may deny or terminate a person's fee installment plan,
which include the acceptance of another court-approved fee payment plan, failure to abide by the terms
and conditions of the plan, a change in the person's driving privileges status, or any other just cause
determined by the Registrar.
Any persons affected by the proposed adoption of this rule may appear at the hearing and be heard in person, or by an attorney, or both, or may present their position, argument, or contention in writing.
Persons may offer and examine witnesses and present evidence to show that the proposed changes will
be unreasonable or unlawful if enacted.
Requests for copies of the proposed rules and/or public comments may be submitted in person or by mail
at the following address: Ohio Department of Public Safety, Office of Legal Services, Suite 531C, 1970
West Broad Street, Columbus, Ohio 43223, Telephone: (614) 466-5605.
