Driver’s licenses, revoke, cancel
DRIVER’S LICENSES – Amends existing law to provide that a driver’s license shall be revoked or canceled under certain circumstances.

RS30885 / S1216

This legislation amends section 49-303 regarding which persons shall not be issued driver licenses. According to the section, there are 14 categories of persons that shall not be issued a driver license, but if a license is somehow issued in one of these prohibited categories, then the Department of Transportation currently has the option to revoke or cancel the license. This legislation brings the statute into conformance with current practices and the intent of the statute by requiring the department to revoke all licenses in the prohibited categories.

This legislation will not increase the costs to state government because it only brings the statute into conformance with current practices of the department.
