Does the Driver Assessment Fee and suspension of the licence expire after three years ?

    Milan Humplik,

    The Driver Assessment Fee ends after payment in full (paid in one shot or over 3 years). There is no automatic suspension with a Driver Assessment Fee unless you fail to timely pay it.

Hello, I am planning on requesting restoration of my revoked license. My license was revoked about 18 months ago. The revocation period has ended but I still need to pay the Drivers Responsibility Assessment. On the DMV website it states that the minimum payment can be made to prevent or close a suspension of a drivers license. Would this also include a revoked license, or would the full amount have to be paid before requesting restoration? I have studying abroad for two years, but am planning to return in June.

    Jake L,

    From what you write, it sounds like you’ll need to pay all monies that are owed. I would visit any DMV office to confirm.
