A person came to us wanting to work again as a Truck Driver. In order to obtain the job, he needed to have a drivers license. Unfortunately he had driven a car with no insurance which wound up getting into an auto accident. The driver of the other car obtained a judgment against our client. The judgment had to be paid and when our client missed the payments, he found himself with a suspended drivers license.
As a result he turned to us to ask what he could do We recommended that he file Bankruptcy. Based on his situation a general rule is that a Philadelphia Bankruptcy filing gets a drivers license reinstated, whether filing under either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.Our client was no longer was required to pay the judgment.
Within a week after the filing of the Bankruptcy filing under Chapter 7 the suspension of the Drivers license was lifted. Our client was able to pay the reinstatement fee to get back his drivers license.This a perfect example of the Bankruptcy being used for the purpose of allowing a person to get back to a normal life. No repayment of the debt was required. This person had no alternative to filing bankruptcy.
