Driver Responsibility Fees Ending

On March 1, Gov. Snyder signed legislation that eliminates new Driver Responsibility Fees and wipes outstanding debts beginning Oct. 1, 2018. 

If you have a current installment payment plan with the Michigan Department of Treasury, your remaining debut may be eliminated and you can apply to have your license reinstated. 

If you don't have a payment plan, you can have your license reinstated after Oct. 1 and apply to have the $125 fee waived if you apply before Dec. 31, 2018.

The Michigan District Judges Association was a key supporter of these changes.
