Governor Ralph Northam is traveling the Commonwealth to help drivers whose licenses were suspended for failure to pay court fines. The governor is informing people of the policy change which went into effect July 1.
Governor Northam says the change will help hundreds of thousands of Virginians get back to work and be able to provide for their families.
“As the word the gets out… I think you’ll see a lot more people going to the DMV and making it happen,” says Northam.
According to the governor, about 600,000 people have had their licenses suspended because of unpaid court fines. He says in less than 48 hours since the change took effect, 26,000 Virginians have had their licenses reinstated.
