The corrected release reads:
SUSPENDED DRIVERS: PAY DRIVER LICENSE REINSTATEMENT FEES ONLINE
Get back on the road faster with Texas.gov
An online service offered by Texas.gov,
in partnership with the Texas
Department of Public Safety (DPS), is helping suspended drivers get
back behind the wheel with less hassle. Texas.gov/LicenseEligibility
lets drivers view instructions for reinstating a license, pay
reinstatement fees, and track driving eligibility status.
Each year, DPS processes an average of 150,000 driver license
reinstatements. Before the Driver
License Eligibility system was launched, DPS
could only receive payments via mail and suspended drivers could only
track their driving status by phone.
Since the online services launch one year ago, more than 100 thousand
suspended drivers have paid their reinstatement fees online instead of
mailing payment to DPS headquarters, and more than 3,500 people log in
every day to view their reinstatement requirements and check their
driving eligibility status.
DPS Driver License Division Assistant Director, Rebecca Davio, is
pleased to offer this convenience to suspended drivers. Not only does
this service speed up the reinstatement process, but it gives users
transparency into the status of their driving eligibility exactly when
they need it, Davio states.
Users have commented, Thank you for making it easier and quicker to
get your DL back in compliance. I cant stress how much better and
convenient, plus easy to use this new method was! and Simple
and informative. The way interaction with my government should be. No
teeth pulling here. Thanks for the job well done!
All suspended Texas drivers, including commercial driver license
holders, are eligible to use the online Driver
License Eligibility system. To use the online service, all you need
is an Internet connection, your Texas driver license or ID number, and
the last four digits of your social security number. For Texans in need
of other driver services, Texas.govs Driver
page also offers Driver
License Renewal, Vehicle
Registration Renewal, Driver
Records, and more.
