The qualifying offenses include traffic citations, parking tickets, misdemeanor offenses, and driver’s license offenses. If a person has lost their license for non-payment of fines, this program will allow them to pay their fines and cost then pay a reinstatement fee to the Alabama Department of Public Safety.
