The nine locations are part of a pilot program called "BMV4U."

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) — Ohio’s Bureau of Motor Vehicles said more than 10,000 suspended drivers have had their licenses reinstated through a new fee payment plan.

A spokeswoman says more than 11,000 people have enrolled since the program launched more than six months ago. The goal was to get drivers legally back on the road, and possibly back to work, more quickly.

The plan allows participants to pay reinstatement fees in monthly installments and legally resume driving in the meantime. Roughly 500,000 suspended drivers were eligible.

It applies to drivers whose only remaining reinstatement requirement is $150 or more in outstanding fees.

Those with court-ordered pending suspensions aren’t eligible.
