    Default How To Get Permanently Revoked License In Ohio Reinstated

    My friend was in an accident around 1984. A passenger died. The driver was charged with vehicular homicide negligently, served six months in jail and his license was revoked permanently. I've never heard of license being taken away forever?! But I saw the legal paper work. Its true. He has tried about six times to go through the legal system to get his license back, even just for privledges to drive to work. Every time he is told they will not review the case and they deny his request. One time, the lawyer who represented him even turned out to be the judge who denied one of the previous requests. Isnt that a conflict of interest?! Anyway, any suggestions on how he could get driving privledges back???

    Default Re: License Permanently Revoked In Ohio About 25 Years Ago- How Do We Get It Back?

    In 2004, the Ohio State Legislature passed O.R.C. 4510.54, which allows for motions to modify lifetime revocations. It reads, in part:

    (A) Except as provided in division (F) of this section, a person whose driverís or commercial driverís license has been suspended for life under a class one suspension or as otherwise provided by law or has been suspended for a period in excess of fifteen years under a class two suspension may file a motion with the sentencing court for modification or termination of the suspension. The person filing the motion shall demonstrate all of the following:

    (1) At least fifteen years have elapsed since the suspension began.

    (2) For the past fifteen years, the person has not been found guilty of any felony, any offense involving a moving violation under federal law, the law of this state, or the law of any of its political subdivisions, or any violation of a suspension under this chapter or a substantially equivalent municipal ordinance.

    (3) The person has proof of financial responsibility, a policy of liability insurance in effect that meets the minimum standard set forth in section 4509.51 of the Revised Code, or proof, to the satisfaction of the registrar of motor vehicles, that the person is able to respond in damages in an amount at least equal to the minimum amounts specified in that section.

    (4) If the suspension was imposed because the person was under the influence of alcohol, a drug of abuse, or combination of them at the time of the offense or because at the time of the offense the personís whole blood, blood serum or plasma, breath, or urine contained at least the concentration of alcohol specified in division (A)(1)(b), (c), (d), or (e) of section 4511.19 of the Revised Code or at least the concentration of a listed controlled substance or a listed metabolite of a controlled substance specified in division (A)(1)(j) of section 4511.19 of the Revised Code, the person also shall demonstrate all of the following:

    (a) The person successfully completed an alcohol, drug, or alcohol and drug treatment program.

    (b) The person has not abused alcohol or other drugs for a period satisfactory to the court.

    (c) For the past fifteen years, the person has not been found guilty of any alcohol-related or drug-related offense.
    Your friend should see a lawyer who specializes in reinstatement of revoked licenses.
