A license forfeiture suspension is imposed when an individual is charged with a first, second, third or fourth degree misdemeanor and either fails to appear in court or fails to pay a court fine.
The suspension will stand until the court forwards the release of forfeiture to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) and a reinstatement fee is paid to the BMV.
