I now live in New York, and my 2 year suspension was up in Sept. 2019. I have completed all requirements; fines/fees paid, insurance purchased, etc. I went to get a NY license this week with my Ohio driving record in hand (which is what the website states that I needed), and they are saying I cannot get a NY license because I no longer have a valid Ohio license. It is considered "failure to reinstate" and that I have to show a valid license in order to get the NY license. Not sure how to do that when I am not a resident of Ohio anymore. Is it really possible that I cannot validate my Ohio license and also cannot get a valid New York license??
Well, if your Ohio license is dead, then you'll have to apply for a NY license from the beginning. If you want your Ohio license back then you'll have to move back there. Either way it's a lot of work. Sorry. :p
