CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) will offer a reinstatement fee installment plan that will allow eligible drivers to renew, become valid, or retake their driver's test by paying a minimum of $50 dollars per month beginning July 15.

The installment plan is a provision in a bill signed by Governor John Kasich called the Collateral Sanctions Bill last September.

According to Public Safety Director Tom Charles, the new provision will open doors for drivers who have faced employment or family obstacles.

"This new provision of law will permit people who are seeking employment a means of transportation to their jobs and parents the ability to take their children to doctor visits and school activities, " said Charles. "The inability to initially pay the full amount of a fee should not prevent people from being gainfully employed or taking care of their families."

Several requirements are in place in order for an individual to qualify for an installment plan. An individual must owe at least $150 in reinstatement fees, have met all other reinstatement requirements, show proof of current insurance, and pay a minimum payment of $50 every 30 days.

Applications are available at www.ohiobmv.com or at any Duty Registrar, Regional Reinstatement office, or through the mail. When applications are approved, an individual's license status will change to expired, valid, or eligible to test status. As long as each payment of the minimum balance is met each month, the license status will remain valid.

For more information, visit www.ohiobmv.gov or call the BMV at (614) 752-7600.
