Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Hi, I would like the opportunity to clarify for you. The second portion of my answer did answer your question. Per the Oregon DMV, in order to obtain your license back after it has been suspended for failure to pay the debt, you must request a clearance letter and form. They are not available except by online request, per the link I provided. I was being extra thorough by providing you the form for the vehicle as well, just in case there was a lien on that too.
Make sure to fill out the form requesting specifically a clearance letter from the DMV that the debt is satisfied. You must also state in the request the name of the creditor and that you have properly satisfied the debt. They will then check this, and send you a reinstatement form along with a clearance form showing your approval for reinstatement. You then fill that out and pay the $75 fee to reinstate your license.
Here is the form to request the a) clearance letter and b) the resintstatement form:
I hope my answer has assisted you and that you will leave me a positive rating! Please feel free to request me by name, should you have any questions in the future.
I called the DMV and requested a clearance letter. They told me that a clearance letter doesn't apply to me, as the judgement has not been changed to satisfied yet, as the creditor has not requested it to be. What I need help with is getting the court to render the judgement as satisfied. Like I stated, the creditor doesn't seem capable of or willing to communicate this to the court in the proper way.
I would happily pay you the $40 for this question if any of the answers I received actually did anything to help my situation.
I have sent certified mail to both the judgement creditor and the judgement attorney requesting a Satisfaction of Judgement. Both claim they have no need to do anything, and refusing to pay attention to me. The court administator also refuses to do anything.
Also, Oregon Code Section 18.325 that you linked to me doesn't exist.
