Civil remedial fees on certain drivers. Repeals ยง 46.2-206.1, which provides for the imposition of civil remedial fees on certain drivers. The bill provides for the Comptroller to issue a refund to persons who have already paid all or part of the civil remedial fees ordered to be paid by a court. It directs the court clerk of the court that ordered the fees and the Department of Motor Vehicles to credit the accounts of persons who still owe civil remedial fees so as to indicate that the fees have been paid and are no longer outstanding. The Department of Motor Vehicles is also directed to reinstate the driver's license to any person whose license was suspended solely for failure to pay civil remedial fees. The bill contains an emergency clause.
