I am on cloud nine. DMV’s office of Drivers Safety called me this morning at 8 o’clock. I needed to answer some questions and she said I could drive effective immediately. So I had it towed to the dealership and getting a new battery maybe an alternator, serviced and whatever may be necessary. The suspension stays on your record for three years here in California which increases your insurance rates significantly but when the insurance company ran my license it didn’t show any suspension so my insurance was regular price. I’m not sure if she got rid of the suspension or what. I don’t think it’s fair a suspension should remain on your license for three years when you lost it through no fault of your own which happens in many cases. Granted I was negligent in forgetting to take my medication but if the insurance catches on it seems like a mighty high price to pay to me for an innocent mistake. I asked the lady why they leave suspensions on for three years but she didn’t really have an answer as to why she just said it’s DMV policy. And insurance told me that it was a requirement by the California Department of Insurance which is closed because of the Covid nonsense.
