(a) Repaid in full to the association the amount paid by the person together with interest at eight percent per annum from the date of the payment; and
(b) Satisfied all requirements of the Motor Vehicle Security-Responsibility Law in respect of giving proof of ability to respond in damages for future accidents, provided, that the court in which the judgment was rendered may, upon 10 days' notice to the association, make an order permitting payment of the amount of the person's indebtedness to the fund, to be made in installments, or in the event the fund makes personal injury protection benefit payments, the person and the fund by agreement may provide for repayment to the fund to be made in installments, and in such case, the person's driver's license, or driving privileges, or registration certificate, if the same have been suspended or revoked, or have expired, may be restored or renewed and shall remain in effect unless and until the person defaults in making any installment payment specified in the order.
