I am so sorry, but after an answer is posted, the customer has to click on the "ACCEPT" button for me to continue. Once the "ACCEPT" button is clicked, I can continue.

I will hit accept when you answer my question
Expert:  C.Fortunato replied 7 years ago.

I don't have a problem with that. It's just that a lot of people say they will and then they don't!

Yes, you will have to pay a processing fee to New Mexico (I don't know how much it is) to have the suspended license restored. If you want, I can get that information for you this Friday.

And I apologize if I offended you - in fact I won't mind if you don't "ACCEPT".

Happy New Year!

If you mean some sort of surcharge, the answer is no.

If the offense was committed in Ohio and you were convicted in Ohio, you cannot also be penalized or for it in New Mexico - to do so would be "double jeopardy", which is prohibited by the US Constitution (5th Amendment).

Thanks for all your help take care

The agency I called would not give me the information without your social security number. If you call(NNN) NNN-NNNN7 and give your social security number, you will be given the fee for reinstatement of your license.
