Suspensions, revocations, and appeals for inspection stations and certified inspectors

After a DMV hearing, the DMV will send you a Notice After Hearing explaining the reasons why your business license, business registration, or inspector certification has been suspended or revoked.

Suspension or revocation period

The suspension order or the revocation order has the date that your suspension or a revocation will begin. 

To comply

An inspection station that is equipped with a computerized vehicle inspection system cannot conduct any inspections. The computerized vehicle inspection system will not allow inspections to be performed during the suspension or revocation period. A DMV Inspector visits the facility to verify compliance.  Learn how to use the data refresh command in the NYVIP unit after your suspension or revocation ends.

A repair or body shop must surrender the certificate of registration for the repair or body shop to a regional office of the Office of Vehicle Safety Field Services or to the DMV Central Office in Albany. You must surrender these items no later than the date that your suspension or revocation will begin or pay penalties.


If you do not agree with the decision that was made by the hearing judge, you can file an appeal. The appeal must be no more than 60 days after the date of the decision letter or notice. Submit your Appeal from DMV Hearing Determination (pdf) (AA-33A) to the DMV Appeals Board.
