RS29039C1 / H0523
A driver’s record with the department clearly indicates the real-time status of an individual’s driving privileges
to law enforcement. Many driving privilege withdrawals are short in duration, making the practice of seizing
the physical driver’s license unnecessary. Additionally, a driver’s license is the primary source of identification
for many uses such as banking, traveling and public services.
This legislation will have no impact on the state’s General fund or any dedicated fund or federal fund because
licenses are rarely surrendered to the Department in this manner. Therefore, fees collected through subsequent
duplicate license applications are negligible. Individuals who are occasionally subject to this process will no
longer have to pay for a duplicate license after it is temporarily withdrawn.
