TO CLARIFY WHEN A PERSON MAY APPLY FOR A RESTORATION OF THE PERSON'S LICENSE AFTER A HABITUAL DWI CONVICTION.
House committee substitute makes the following changes to 1st edition. Clarifies that a person whose driver's license is revoked under GS 120-138.5(d) (permanent license revocation for habitually impaired driving) may have that license conditionally restored by the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) after a period of at least 10 years after the conviction except as otherwise provided in subsection GS 20-19(e4) as amended in this act. Also clarifies that a license revoked under GS 20-138.5(d) may be conditionally restored. Provides that if the person's conviction for habitually impaired driving and revocation of license was for an offense that involved serious injury to or the death of another person, the DMV may conditionally restore the license of that person after the license has been revoked for at least 10 years after any sentence imposed by the court has been completed. Clarifies that the person must also provide satisfactory proof of no use of alcohol or unlawful use of controlled substances since the person's conviction in the 10 years immediately preceding the person's application for a restored license.
