I was in a car accident when I was 17. My motherwent to court since I was underage and it was her vehicle. The insurance company and her agreed on payment plan. She lost job and couldn't continue payments. I had judgement taken against me and my license suspended. I never signed or agreed to any payment plan. It has been 10 years. Is there anything I can do to get my license back. I'm a single mother of three and license is a necessity. Any advice would be great.. Kathy
You can find out what the balance is and then satisfy the judgment to get your license back. Good luck to you.

You likely need to get an attorney involved to investigate the facts and determine whether the suspension is valid. The attorney can also negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.
It would likely be worth the investment, depending on the actual amount of the judgment.
Best of luck to you.

If it was a valid judgment and revocation of your license, another option is filing Bankruptcy. A Bankruptcy attorney can discuss with you whether Chapter 7 or 13 is best for you and your family. Though Bankruptcy is not an answer most folks are looking for, it is usually preferable to criminal convictions for driving on revoked, or never driving at all.
First, go to the courthouse and see if it has been 10 years since the judgment was taken. If so see if it was renewed, if not you should be able to obtain a license by proving to the state that the judgment has expired. If not expired or you cant wait until it expires, contact the entity with the judgment, explain your circumstances and be ready to enter into a payment plan, even if its for a very small monthly amount. They can then issue a conditional release to tennessee and you should then be able to obtain a license.
