- Resources – Self Help:
We have prepared a wide range of material to help drivers with suspended licenses. These materials can help your clients at least get a better understanding of the steps they can take to attempt to restore their drivers’ licenses.
Share our simple “one-page” self help guide with them. Encourage them to dive into the longer “toolkit”. The toolkit gives more detail on each step. Key links to relevant web pages and other resources will also be found in this section.
- Resources – Advocates:
Attorneys, reentry professionals, and others may benefit from reading a range of resources we’ve gathered. A good place to start is with our Fact Sheet where you’ll learn the most suspensions aren’t the result of being a danger behind the wheel but rather a failure to pay court fines.
You can also visit this resources page to reference sources like the Department of Justice and the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators. Recent legislative actions in Virginia are also available here.
