Texas DPS Offers Driver Responsibility Amnesty Program

The Texas DPS is giving drivers who have suspended licenses because of unpaid surcharges by offering an amnesty period from January 17, 2011 to April 17, 2011. The goal of the amnesty period is to bring drivers into compliance with the surcharge law while also allowing them to regain their driving privileges.

The amnesty period reduces the surcharge to 10%of the original amount for all owed surcharges, having the maximum surcharge owed at $250. This amnesty surcharge is on top of all the other reinstatement fees required from the driver. This is only eligible for drivers who have unpaid surcharge assessed between September 30, 2004 to December 31, 2008.

All that's needed is the driver's license number and a computer to apply for the reduced surcharges on this page: https://www.txsurchargeonline.com/AmnestyOptin.aspx or by telephone at 1 (877) 207-3170. Applications are accepted only until April 7, 2011.

By giving the amnesty period for drivers, the Texas DPS hopes that drivers who have lost their ability to operate a vehicle be able to start the year right.
