§17B-2B-8. Suspension, revocation and reinstatement of license.

(a) The commissioner may immediately suspend the Class G driver's license of any driver who is involved in an accident resulting in bodily injury or death, violates the restrictions placed on his or her license or is convicted of more than one moving violation within a twelve-month period, if the commissioner makes a finding that allowing the licensee to continue to drive pending resolution of the suspension would present a danger to the public.

(b) The commissioner shall suspend the driver's license of any licensee who fails to meet visual acuity or visual field minimum standards.

(c) The commissioner shall suspend the driver's license of any licensee who fails an evaluation of his or her ability to safely operate a motor vehicle by the division of rehabilitation's driving training program.

(d) A licensee whose license is suspended pursuant to this section may request a hearing within ten days of receiving the commissioner's notice of immediate suspension. No stay of the license suspension may be granted pending the hearing, but the commissioner must conduct a requested hearing on the suspension of the license within seventy days of receiving the request for a hearing. Only the licensee may request a continuance, but no stay of the suspension may be granted pending the delayed hearing.
