Under existing law, the penalty for driving while a person's license
or privilege to drive is under restraint includes that the person may not be
issued a license or granted any driving privileges for a period of time
beyond the initial restraint. This penalty is in addition to a sentence to the
county jail or fines that may be imposed as a penalty for driving under

The bill removes the penalty restricting a person's driving
privileges beyond the initial restraint when the initial restraint is for
reasons other than an alcohol-related offense.
Under existing law, the department of revenue is required to
immediately revoke an habitual offender's driver's license. The bill
removes this revocation requirement when a person is an habitual
offender solely because of convictions for driving under restraint when
the restraint is for reasons other than an alcohol-related offense.
