Philips v. Commonwealth

Facts:

The Arlington General District Court suspended the Petitioner’s driving privileges for driving while his license was suspended for failure to pay fines and costs and also for he left the scene of the accident after it was occurred. The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles determined that petitioner was a habitual offender as defined by Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-351. The department revoked petitioner’s driving privileges and he filed a petition to restore them under Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-361(B), which provides that a person may petition the court for immediate restoration of his driving privileges if (1) the person’s habitual offender determination was based solely upon his failure to pay fines and costs, and (2) the person has paid all outstanding fines and costs relating to his habitual offender determination. The court denied the petition because it concluded that the petitioner’s suspensions were not all for fines and costs as required by § 46.2-361(B). The court found that petitioner’s driving privileges were suspended on the grounds for his failure to attend the habitual offender interview and for failure to attend a driver improvement clinic.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • Convictions for failure to pay fines and costs are the types of convictions listed in Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-361(B) for which immediate restoration, upon payment of all fines and costs, is available. A suspension under § 46.2-707 for failure to pay the uninsured motorist fee is not one of those suspensions which, when it is the basis of the predicate convictions, enables one to seek restoration upon payment of fines and costs.
