On my drivers license, I have 10 Suspensions over the years

This answer was rated:

On my drivers license, I have 10 Suspensions over the years and some tickets dating back to 1979. Is there any way that I can get this cleaned up a little?
Hello and thank you for requesting me.

Can you please tell me:

1) What state(s) are these suspensions/tickets in?
2) Are any outstanding, i.e. not paid, etc?
3) As a result of #2, is your license suspended currently?

J,

Thank you for your reply.

Is there any way that I can get this cleaned up a little?

Not right away. There is no way to simply "clean up" one's criminal/driving record, I am afraid. The best choice someone in your situation may have is possibly to file for a PARDON.

What you describe - these are criminal matters, and from what I understand - convictions. Essentially, Indiana may pardon your conviction. Indiana's Parole Board has this power, delegated to it by the Governor. See here on how to file.

Now, there is no right for a pardon - it is at the state's discretion. But if you do receive it, then, the crime(s) for which you have been convicted would be as thought it/they did not exist for official intents and purposes.

I hope this helps. Good luck.

Would this open up a whole new can of worms?

J,

Not really. The worst that they can do is say no, but, one really does not face any "repercussions" from this in any way from the Parole Board, the D.A.(s), or the BMV.
