Summary

Revocation or suspension of driver's licenses; laws of other jurisdictions. Provides that the Commissioner of the Department of Motor Vehicles is limited to reviewing the text of another jurisdiction's law when determining whether a person's driver's license should be administratively revoked or suspended as a result of such person's conviction in the other jurisdiction for an offense substantially similar to an offense under the law of the Commonwealth that requires revocation or suspension of a person's driver's license. The bill also provides that if the Commissioner cannot reasonably determine from the text of the other jurisdiction's law whether such law is substantially similar to the law of the Commonwealth, the Commissioner may, if available, review a certified copy of the final order of the person's conviction in the other jurisdiction. The bill also establishes a process for any person whose driver's license was administratively revoked or suspended prior to July 1, 2017, on the basis of a conviction in another jurisdiction to request a review of such revocation or suspension. The provisions of the act do not apply to any disqualification of eligibility to operate a commercial motor vehicle imposed by the Commissioner pursuant to the Virginia Commercial Driver's License Act.
