TO MAKE TAMPERING WITH AN IGNITION INTERLOCK SYSTEM AN UNLAWFUL ACT AND TO ALLOW THE DIVISION OF MOTOR VEHICLES TO CONDUCT BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS ON EVERY PERSON APPLYING FOR A DEALER'S LICENSE, MECHANIC'S LICENSE, OR ANY OTHER LICENSE ISSUED BY THE DIVISION EXCEPT FOR A DRIVERS LICENSE.
Adds new section GS 20-17.8A to make tampering with, circumventing, or attempting to circumvent the operation of an ignition interlock device on a motor vehicle a Class 1 misdemeanor. Adds new section GS 114-19.31 to allow the Department of Justice (DOJ) to provide to the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) the criminal history record of any applicant for a dealer’s license, mechanic’s inspection license, or station inspection license, but not an applicant for a driver’s license. Requires DMV to provide DOJ with the applicant’s fingerprints, a signed form consenting to the criminal history record check and use of the fingerprints, and other information as required by DOJ. Provides that DOJ must keep confidential all information about applicants obtained pursuant to state and national criminal history checks. Allows DOJ to charge a fee to offset the costs of conducting such checks. Effective December 1, 2011, and applies to offenses committed and licenses issued on or after that date.
