If you have had your license suspended by the Massachusetts RMV, you know it is a frustrating and difficult process to get it back. Often, you will need a hearing with the Massachusetts Board of Appeals to get your license back. This is a three member board that has more discretion to reinstate your license than the RMV. To get to the Board of Appeals, you must fill out a form and send in a fifty dollar filing fee. Your hearing will be scheduled in four to six months. Here are some tips for success before the Board.
- The Board is not simply going to reinstate your license no matter how long you have been without it.
- You must address the reason for the suspension; if it is medical, make sure to fill out the RMV medical forms. There is a medical evaluation form as well as a loss of consciousness form if there is any allegation you lost consciousness or sustained a head injury.
