Driving Privileges

To get driving privileges from Clinton County Common Pleas Court, your suspension must be issued from this court. We cannot give privileges if you owe a reinstatement fee. You must satisfy all insurance and/or financial obligations with the BMV first.

If your suspension is issued from here, please contact Probation to complete a driving privilege investigation report. They will help you file the paperwork and there is a  $25 filing fee.

Once reviewed by the court, a hearing will be scheduled and you will be notified by certified mail.

Driving Privileges can be granted to individuals whose license has been suspended by the Clinton County, Ohio Common Pleas Court who meet the following criteria:

  • Must pay a $25.00 fee for the filing of a driving privileges petition (change requests cost $10)

  • Must have no other suspensions or obstacles to their license other than the Clinton County Common Pleas Court suspension (this includes reinstatement fees, suspensions from other Courts, warrant blocks, etc.)

  • Must have verifiable proof of financial responsibility (SR 22 bond, insurance, etc.)

  • Must complete the Driving Privileges worksheet and turn it in along with the appropriate fee and proof of financial responsibility to the supervising probation officer

Once these criteria are met, a petition for driving privileges may be filed.  Final decisions on the granting of privileges lie solely in the presiding Judge of the Common Pleas Court.  All fees are non-refundable.
