A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §17B-3-14, relating to motor vehicle driver's license; cancellation, suspension or revocation of licenses; and establishing a driver's license restoration program.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §17B-3-14, to read as follows:
ARTICLE 3. CANCELLATION, SUSPENSION OR REVOCATION OF LICENSES.
§17B-3-14. Authority of division to establish a license restoration program.

(a) The division is hereby required to establish a driver's license restoration program within the Driver Services Section of the Division of Motor Vehicles.
(b) The driver's license restoration program is responsible for providing information and other educational services intended to assist persons in the reinstatement of their driving privileges after their driver's license have been suspended or revoked by the division.
(c) The Commissioner of the Division of Motor Vehicles shall: (1) Develop information and educational materials necessary to support the driver's license restoration program;
(2) Process reports showing the specific driving history of each program participant so that individual counseling assistance can be provided relative to the restoration requirements for each license;
(3) Make these program services available at all county regional offices of the Division of Motor Vehicles and at all Day Report centers operated in conjunction with Community Corrections Programs throughout the state: Provided, That if there is no division regional office or a Day Report center in any county, the commissioner shall provide for the delivery of these services at any other public meeting place located in the county; and
(4) Ensure that the treatment and rehabilitation programs required for the reinstatement of driver's license revoked due to driving under the influence be made available to those persons at the Day Report Centers for Community Correction Programs and not exclusively through contracts with local or regional community mental health programs as required in other provisions of this code.



NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to
establish a driver's license restoration program for persons whose motor vehicle driver's license has been cancelled, suspended or revoked.

This section is new; therefore, strike-throughs and underscoring have been omitted.
