As a result of a conviction in Fairfax Count Courts, you may be ordered to complete certain programs. Below is the information you need to get enrolled. PAY YOUR FINES AND COSTS: Instructions on how to pay your fines and costs can be found at http://www.courts.state.va.us/caseinfo/tickets.html. Failure to pay your fines and costs within 30 days, unless other arrangements are made with the clerk’s office, will result in you being in violation of the suspended portion of your sentence and DMV will suspend your license.
2. VASAP: Upon your release from jail, you should report immediately to the clerk’s office on the First Floor of the Courthouse. At that time, you will be given an initial appointment with VASAP and be enrolled in their program. I recommended that you attend their walk in hours to fulfill this requirement prior to the initial intake date. The Contact information for VASAP is 10640 Page Avenue, Suite 400. Fairfax, VA 22030 Phone: (703) 246-2727. A failure to enroll in VASAP will result in a violation of the terms and conditions of your suspended sentence.
3. RESTRICTED LICENSE: Your restricted license will be available for pickup in the clerk’s office upon your release from jail. You should report there immediately to obtain said license. I have attached all the paperwork the clerk will provide to you that discusses issues like VASAP, Interlock, and your DMV Requirements. Please let me know if you have any questions.
3. IGNITION INTERLOCK: Before you can validly drive on a restricted license, you must install the ignition interlock device. VASAP will give you some information about vendors and having the device installed. Please choose a location and have VASAP fax them the order so they may install the device in your car. Please contact me after you have had the Ignition Interlock Device installed for a period of 6 months so we can petition the court for removal.
4. LICENSE ISSUES: You license is suspended until such a time as you apply
for a restricted license. Once that license is granted, you will have
to comply with some Virginia DMV requirements before you can validly drive
in Virginia. After 30 days but no later than 60 days from the time you
withdraw your appeal, you may go to the Virginia DMV to take care of the
following: (1) pay a reinstatement fee (http://www.dmv.state.va.us/drivers/#reinstate.asp), (2) show proof that you have enrolled in VASAP, and (3) show proof of
FR-44 insurance (https://www.dmv.virginia.gov/commercial/#insurance/certifications.asp). You can obtain a compliance summary from any Virginia DMV or Online.
