Property Damage Claim Suspension

Suspensions & Hearings

The Registry of Motor Vehicles holds administrative hearings when a property damage claim is received. Fourteen (14) days prior to any suspension/revocation action, the Registrar will schedule a hearing on the matter and issue a hearing notice to the operator at his/her address on file.

An operator must obtain a signed release of judgment from the plaintiff and present such documentation to an RMV Hearings Officer prior to the intended date of suspension/revocation. If a release of judgment is not filed prior to the intended date of suspension/revocation, the operator's permit/license, or right to operate, and/or registration will be suspended/revoked, and remain suspended/revoked until a release of judgment is filed.
