Hearings for Out-of-State Suspensions

Suspensions & Hearings

Once a suspension period has been fully served, an operator may be eligible for license reinstatement.

An operator whose permit/license or right to operate is suspended/revoked in Massachusetts due to a drug, alcohol, or motor vehicle fatality-related conviction in another state/jurisdiction must bring all the following documents to a Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) Hearings Officer in order to be authorized for reinstatement:

  • A Certified Drivers History (current within 30 days) from the state in which the offense occurred
  • Court Abstracts providing disposition information
  • A letter of reinstatement from the state of violation (current within 30 days)

PLEASE NOTE: After an RMV Hearings Officer reviews your documents, you may be required to provide additional information.

An operator whose permit/license or right to operate is suspended/revoked in Massachusetts due to any other conviction in another state/jurisdiction must bring a letter of reinstatement from the state of conviction to any RMV Hearings Officer in order to be reinstated. Out-of-state letters of reinstatement must be no more than 30 days old.
