(rant) Ok, the story goes like this. I had my license taken away last summer because I went ONE point over the limit after getting my third ticket. The vast majority of people who exceed their points in CO for the first time get a red license which lets them drive to work and school, BUT NOT ME. Also, instead of the standard 6 month suspension they give me 7 months. Why?? I have no idea. Also, it took 8 MONTHS to process my paperwork and suspend my license in the first place, which put my suspension in a much worse timeframe. I called the DMV last week and check to see what I need to get my license back. They say $40 reinstatement fee and proof of insurence. My suspension ended over the weekend, so I go in today to get my license back. The guy that gives you your wait # and checks for your info says i'm ok, so I proceed to wait. 2 1/2 hours later, I get my # called and the people at the front desk tell me my company policy certificate isn't good enough!! They said my name specifically has to be on the car's policy and that a company name isn't sufficient. They didn't say this on teh phone or at teh front of the line when I got my #. I wasted my whole morning and half the afternoon for nothing! I try to talk to them on the phone and they keep giving me the same BS that my company insurence isn't good enough. The company policy is all I have ever had! How do they expect an 18 year old who doesn't own a car and has no license to afford $3,000+ for his own private policy??? I have to work to afford my own insurence, but I can't work unless I have my license! Apparently when they made this new state statute, they didn't think of this and though it would be funny to screw over a lot of people that made a few mistakes. I did my time! I rode the bus for over half a year and paid for few speeding tickets! Why do they have to do this to decent people? Has anyone else had a problem like this with the government? Sorry guys, thanx for letting me let loose.
