How to Enter A Plan
- Call the OMV Call Center at (225) 925-6146 and select Option 3. You cannot enter an installment plan online. The reinstatement call center is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
- Complete the online "Contact Us" form here. Select "Installment Agreement or Reinstatement Return Call" as type of inquiry. An OMV staff member will contact you at the number provided. Guests planning to enter a plan must know their driver’s license number, have a valid email address and be ready to make the first payment by debit/credit card or ACH account at the time of the return call.
- You will be required to sign a contract online to be in the installment plan.
- Contacts are signed electronically and will require you have access to the email address provided and the internet in order to complete the contract and sign while you are on the phone with the OMV operator.
- If you are not the individual who needs to get into the installment plan, you will need an original power of attorney that specifically authorizes the agent to enter into an installment plan and conduct financial transactions with the Office of Motor Vehicle. An original Power of Attorney must be mailed to and received at the OMV before an installment plan can be completed.
- Update payment information in the customer portal when any information changes, such as credit card/debit card number, bank account number, expiration date, etc.
- Ensure the type of card on file allows for recurring payments (monthly payments) to be auto-drafted (some cards have restrictions placed on them and prevent or limit the number of recurring payments)
- Your account must have enough available funds to cover the withdrawal of both the installment plan fee and the service fee on the 10th day of the month.
