Arranging a Fine Payment Plan
If the MVA's Insurance Compliance Division (ICD) has fined you for an insurance violation and you would like to arrange a payment plan to pay off your debt, you can be referred to the State of Maryland's Central Collection Unit (CCU). The CCU may be able to assist you in arranging a payment plan since the MVA does not offer payment plans. To qualify for the CCU payment plan, you must not owe money to the CCU because of another MVA fine. If you already have a payment plan through the CCU, you first must pay off the entire debt amount before you will be allowed to set up a new payment plan.
Note that you will be assessed a 17% collection fee that will be included in your payment plan.
How can I arrange a payment plan through the Central Collection Unit (CCU)?
Visit the Insurance Compliance Division (ICD) office at any MVA full service branch office. The ICD representative will complete and send a debt referral form to the CCU on your behalf. Then, if the office you visit has a CCU office located on-site, you will be sent there immediately to arrange the payment plan. If the MVA office you visit does not have a CCU unit on-site, you will need to make a separate visit to one of the CCU office locations. At the time you arrange the payment plan with the CCU, you will be expected to pay a down payment on your debt. Be sure to bring cash or a credit card with you to the CCU location; checks are not accepted.
Note that if you do not make payments to the CCU as agreed upon, a registration flag will be placed against your vehicle that makes it illegal for the vehicle to be driven. This flag will also prevent you from registering any other vehicle(s).
- A 17% collection fee will be assessed on the entire debt amount.
