I moved from VA over 5 years ago. I just went to renew my license in CO where I have been living and they informed me that VA DMV put a hold on my ability to do that because I was without car insurance for a short period of time around November 2006. Do I have to pay this fee? Is there a statute of limitations on how long VA can pursue this $500 fee? Thank you very much for your help.

If you want to get a driver's license in Colorado you need to pay the fee assessed against you in the state of Virginia. You do not have to pay the fee but if you want the Colorado driver's license payment of the $500 fee plus accrued penalties and interest needs to be done.

The time period for the validity of a judgment or fee is typically ten (10) years subject to renewal in the time period before expiration of ten (10) years.
