BILL NUMBER:S7613 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to the restoration of a driver's license in certain cases PURPOSE: This legislation would clarify and mandate that, when a person has been convicted of an alcohol/drug-related driving offense resulting in a license suspension or revocation, such person's driver's license may not be restored by the Department of Motor Vehicles unless and until all conditions of the sentence upon conviction have been completed. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill amends § 510 (license suspensions and revocations generally) and § 1193 (criminal and administrative penalties for alcohol-related offenses) of the Vehicle and Traffic Law (VTL), by adding mirror provisions that require that no license or privilege to operate a motor vehicle, which has been suspended or revoked for the commission of an alcohol/drug-related driving offense, may be restored unless the offender has demonstrated that he or she has complied with and completed all statutory requirements imposed under Article 31 of the VTL or by the court. The Commissioner of Motor Vehicles, in consultation with the Office of Court Administration, will promulgate any necessary rules and develop any necessary forms to carry out the relicensing process.
