FRA/Non-Compliance (driving without insurance)
Every driver and/or owner of a motor vehicle is required by the Ohio BMV to have in effect at all times valid insurance coverage (also referred to as financial responsibility). Any driver, and/or owner of a motor vehicle, who fails to provide proof of insurance coverage will lose his/her driving and registration privileges for a maximum of two (2) years. The Ohio BMV requires you to provide proof of insurance coverage when any of the following occurs: when you are involved in a crash, when you receive any traffic ticket, or when you are randomly selected by the BMV.
If this is your 1st non-compliance offense, you must pay the BMV your reinstatement fee in full, and provide proof that you have obtained a SR22 or bond insurance coverage. You do not need to apply for limited privileges, because you will be in compliance after meeting these requirements with the BMV.
If this is your 2nd non-compliance offense, you will be placed on a 1 year license suspension. You are eligible for limited driving privileges after 15 days following the start of the suspension period, and you may apply for these privileges through the Court that has jurisdiction over where you live.
If this is your 3rd or more non-compliance offense, you will be placed on a 2 year license suspension. You are eligible for limited driving privileges after 30 days following the start of the suspension period. You may apply for these privileges through the Court that has jurisdiction over where you live.
Before applying for limited driving privileges, you must also meet the following requirements:
12 Point Suspension
When you have accumulated twelve (12) or more points against your Ohio driver’s license within a two year (2) period, the Ohio BMV is required to send you a notice at your last known address imposing a “Twelve (12) Point Suspension” of your license. The suspension is a class D suspension, which lasts for a period of six (6) months, effective the 20th day after the mailing of the notice.
During the twelve point suspension period, the State of Ohio allows you to petition for limited driving privileges through the Court that has jurisdiction over where you live. Before applying for limited driving privileges, you must also meet the following requirements:
