Information

The Northwest Justice Project provides free civil (non-criminal) legal services for people who cannot afford a lawyer in Washington.  If you need your driver's license so that you can work and your license was suspended for one of the following reasons, we may be able to help:

  • Unpaid traffic fines

  • Suspension due to a car accident when you were uninsured

  • You have one or more convictions for driving with a suspended license and you still have unpaid fines even though the suspension period is over

In order for us to assist you, the court must have already ruled on your traffic citations.  The court can rule even if you did not come to court.  To find out whether you qualify for assistance, call the toll-free hotline from 9:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. at 1-888-201-1014. 

Please note that we are unable to assist where a license is suspended for failure to pay child support or certain criminal traffic convictions such as DUIs.
