Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor's driver's license was reinstated on Thursday, two weeks after it was suspended because he failed to provide proof of insurance.

Pryor went to an Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles office, showed his proof of insurance and his license was reinstated.

The suspension was to last until August, 10TV News reported.

Despite the suspension, Pryor was seen driving as recently as Monday night, when he left a team meeting hours after coach Jim Tressel resigned.

It was not immediately clear if he had obtained some type driving privileges despite the suspension

Pryor, who faces a five-game suspension at the beginning of the 2011 season after he admitted selling memorabilia in exchange for gas and improper benefits, is one of several Ohio State football players mired in controversy.

In the wake of Jim Tressel's resignation earlier this week, it was learned that Ohio State and the NCAA had initiated a separate investigation of Pryor and allegations that he received cars and other benefits.
