Bill Summaries:

  • Summary date: Apr 15 2013 - More information

    Amends GS 20-19 to require the Division of Motor Vehicles, when restoring a license that was revoked under specified impaired driving offenses, require the person to agree to and indicated on the license, a restriction that the person may operate only a vehicle displaying a special plate. Requires the restriction to be in place seven years from the date of restoration if the person's license was permanently revoked, or three years in all other case. Violations of the restriction result in a one year revocation. Requires the plate on all registered vehicles owned by that person, unless the vehicle is relied upon by another member of the family and the vehicle is not in the person's possession.

    Enacts new GS 20-82.1 establishing the special registration plate, which must be a different color from those regularly issued. Makes the plates subject to an additional $10 fee.

    Applies to offenses committed on or after December 1, 2013.
