NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Louisiana drivers can now pay off fines, fees or penalties on an installment plan, while keeping their driving privileges.
The Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) announced the installment agreements will be available for eligible drivers in field offices in New Orleans on Veterans Highway, Slidell, Harvey, Thibodaux, Shreveport, Bossier City, Monroe, Lake Charles, Leesville, Lafayette, Alexandria, Baton Rouge, and Livingston.
Commissioner Karen St. Germain said, "We recognize that people fall behind sometimes and just can't pay an entire bill at one time."
She said legislation enacted this year made it possible for the OMV to begin offering the option.
Payments will be processed using automatic monthly bank drafts or automatic monthly charges to debit, credit or prepaid cards. A processing fee will be charged.
