The BMV used to mail out random letters to Ohio drivers requiring them to provide current proof of financial responsibility. If the driver failed to respond or did not have proof of financial responsibility the first time, his license was suspended until he filed an SR-22 certificate and paid a $150.00 reinstatement fee. By a third violation, the license suspension was 2 years and a $600.00 reinstatement fee. To the driver with proof, the process was irksome. To the economically disadvantaged driver without proof, the process was another financial burden that compounded rather than helped to reduce the number of uninsured drivers in Ohio. Fortunately, Ohio abolished the random selection suspension as of July 3, 2019.
