Previously, a school superintendent was required to notify the DMV any time a student was expelled from a public school, at which time the DMV was permitted to suspend or refuse to issue or renew the expelled student a drivers license. This bill eliminates the ability for the DMV to suspend a students drivers license who has been expelled from a public school.
