What to do if my father co-signed for the loan for my car which I’ve paid off 2 years ago and he recently got a DUI so my plates were impounded?

I live at a separate address and am the only driver of this vehicle. What is the cheapest way to fix this?

I suggest that you go down to the local department of motor vehicles where you live and explain the situation to its representative to see what can be done. The problem is that so long as your father is the co-signor on an outstanding loan for the car you might not be able to get plates to drive it given his conviction for a DUI.
