AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic  law,  in  relation  to  certain
  requirements for renewing a driver's license

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 6 of section 502 of the  vehi-
cle and  traffic law, as amended by section 3 of part K of chapter 59 of
the laws of 2009, is amended to read as follows:
  (a)  A  license  issued  pursuant  to subdivision five of this section
shall be valid until the expiration date contained thereon, unless  such
license  is suspended, revoked or cancelled. Such license may be renewed
by submission of an application for renewal, the fee prescribed by  law,
proofs  of  prior licensing, fitness and acceptable vision prescribed by
the  commissioner,  the  applicant's  social  security  number,  and  if
required  by  the  commissioner  a  photo image of the applicant in such
numbers and form as the commissioner shall prescribe.  AN APPLICANT  FOR
RENEWAL  SHALL  NOT  BE  REQUIRED  TO PROVIDE HIS OR HER SOCIAL SECURITY
NUMBER OR SHOW A SOCIAL SECURITY CARD EVEN IF SUCH NUMBER  OR  CARD  WAS
NOT  PROVIDED  TO THE DEPARTMENT IN A PREVIOUS TRANSACTION. In addition,
an applicant for renewal of a license containing  a  hazardous  material
endorsement  shall  pass  an examination to retain such endorsement. The
commissioner shall, with respect to the renewal of a hazardous materials
endorsement,  comply  with  the  requirements  imposed  upon  states  by
sections  383.141  and  1572.13 of title 49 of the code of federal regu-
lations. A renewal of such license shall be issued by  the  commissioner
upon  approval of such application, except that no such license shall be
issued if its issuance would be  inconsistent  with  the  provisions  of
section  five hundred sixteen of this title, and except that the commis-
sioner may refuse to renew such license if the applicant is  the  holder
