Yes, provided the unpaid liability is dischargeable in the bankruptcy case. Section 525 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that “a governmental unit may not deny, revoke, suspend or refuse to renew a license . . . [of] a person that is or has been a debtor . . . or has not paid a debt that is dischargeable in the case . . . . ” Therefore, filing any type of bankruptcy, including chapter 7 or chapter 13 will allow you to have your drivers license reinstated, unless the debt that caused the suspension is nondischargeable, such as a debt arising out of driving while under the influence.
