Reinstatement of a suspended license
I recently paid to have my license reinstated after a minor marijuana charge. I have paid all court costs/fines and the reinstatement fee to the BMV. I have the actual ID license that is the same before and after the suspension. It is not expired etc. Is this a valid license if I were to be stopped while driving by a police officer?
Is the suspension time up? You can always call the BMV and ask if you are valid.
