Bill summary

Identical to H 1098, filed 5/15/14.

Amends GS 20-9, concerning persons not licensed to operate a motor vehicle, clarifying that the DMV Medical Review Board can, upon request, review cancellations and restrictions to driver's licenses (previously, could only review denials). Changes and reduces the medical review board from five members to three members. Provides that the DMV Commissioner must select the two medical professionals for the Board (previously, the Chairman of the Commission for Public Health selected four medical professionals to serve on the Board).  Authorizes equitable compensation for the medical professionals.

Adds new language that clarifies that a request for a hearing before the Medical Review Board does not suspend any denial, cancellation, or restriction to a driver's license.

Provides that adverse decisions will be delivered by certified mail (previously, were delivered by registered mail).

Makes conforming and technical changes.

Effective October 1, 2014.
