What is a Non-Compliance Suspension in Ohio?

A non-compliance suspension occurs most often when a driver fails to show proof of insurance at a traffic stop or at an accident. The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) imposes the suspension.  The suspension can be removed if valid proof of coverage at the time of the traffic stop or accident is provided to the BMV.  You can also get a non-compliance suspension if you fail to pay a court ordered judgment.  Below is what happens on a first offense and subsequent offenses and how to reinstate your license:
