Summary

Under existing law, the department of revenue (department) is
either allowed or required to administratively suspend, cancel, revoke,
deny, or deny renewal of a driver's license, instruction permit, or
identification card following specified conduct by a licensee or card
holder. The bill repeals the department's discretionary authority to take
administrative action to:

  • Cancel, deny, or deny renewal of a person's driver's license:
  • For unlawful or fraudulent use or conviction of
misuse of license, titles, permits, or license plates;
  • Because the person failed to pay a monetary
judgment or has an outstanding warrant relating to
a traffic violation or a municipal violation
committed when the person was under 18 years of
age; or
  • Because the person failed to pay a judgment for
using public transportation without paying the fare;
and
  • Cancel, deny, or deny renewal of a person's driver's license
or identification card because the person failed to register
all vehicles owned by the person.
The bill repeals mandatory administrative actions by the
department to:
  • Revoke a person's driver's license or instruction permit for
certain convictions related to illegal underage possession or
consumption of alcohol or marijuana or attempting to
obtain alcohol by misrepresenting the person's age or by
any other method or because the person was convicted of,
or has received a deferred judgment for, aggravated motor
vehicle theft or second degree criminal trespass;
  • Deny issuance or renewal of a person's driver's license
because the person failed to pay a monetary judgment or
has an outstanding warrant relating to a traffic violation or
a municipal violation committed when the person was
under 18 years of age or the person failed to pay a
monetary judgment for using public transportation without
paying the fare; or
  • Suspend the driver's license of certain persons following
conviction for selling, serving, or otherwise providing
alcohol to or for an underage person or permitting or failing
to prevent an underage person from using the person's
identification to unlawfully purchase alcohol.
The bill prohibits the department from denying to issue, renew, or
reinstate a person's driver's license because the person failed to pay a
monetary judgment or has an outstanding warrant relating to a traffic
violation or a municipal violation. The person must pay the required fees
for issuance or reinstatement of the license.
