Driver improvement clinics and driver training schools. Lengthens from one year to two years the validity of and increases the cost of licenses and certifications for driver training schools that are third party testers, third party examiners for Class A driver training schools, driver improvement clinics, driver training instructors, and driver training schools, including computer-based driver education providers, and provides for concurrent expirations of licenses and certifications for such schools and their instructors. The bill authorizes the Commissioner of the Department of Motor Vehicles, from July 1, 2023, to July 1, 2024, to issue such licenses and certifications for a validity period of between one and 24 months with a fee prorated on a monthly basis to ensure the even distribution of renewals over a calendar year. The bill has a delayed effective date of July 1, 2024, except that the provision of the bill authorizing the issuance of such licenses and certifications by the Commissioner is effective in due course. This bill is identical to HB 2247.
