Should I take out a loan to remove a suspension from my license?
Long story short—my license was suspended several years ago. I went through the proper legal channels and repaid my debt to society. The problem is that I can't get my license reinstated until I pay $1,000 in fines. I don't have the money. Should I take out a loan?

How do I get my license back?
I was rear-ended a couple of weeks ago and my license was suspended because the officer couldn't verify my proof of insurance. I have insurance, and the company is supposed to call to get the issue resolved with the police, but I can't get them to do anything and I need my license back. Do I just suck it up and pay the fee to get my license back even though I don't technically owe it?
