AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 56-1-280, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO REVOCATION OR SUSPENSION OF DRIVER'S LICENSE, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT MULTIPLE PERIODS OF SUSPENSION RUN CONCURRENTLY AND TO PROVIDE THE PROCEDURE FOR LICENSE REINSTATEMENT; AND TO AMEND SECTION 56-1-745, RELATING TO SUSPENSION OF DRIVER'S LICENSE FOR CONVICTION OF A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE VIOLATION, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT IF CONVICTED OF AN OFFENSE MANDATING SUSPENSION OF LICENSE WHILE HOLDING A SPECIAL RESTRICTED DRIVER'S LICENSE THEN THE SPECIAL RESTRICTED LICENSE IS REVOKED AND THE REMAINING TIME FOR SUSPENSION UNDER THIS SECTION IS IMPOSED.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Suspension or cancellation of driver's license
SECTION 1. Section 56-1-280 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"Section 56-1-280. (A) The department shall revoke or suspend the license of any driver upon receiving a record of the driver's conviction of any offense for which revocation or suspension is required by law.
(B) The department shall revoke the driver's license of any person upon receiving notice of the conviction of the person for:
(1) manslaughter resulting from the operation of a motor vehicle; or
(2) a felony under the laws of this State in the commission of which a motor vehicle is used.
However, if another provision of law relating to these offenses requires suspension or cancellation of the driver's license, that other provision of law shall control. When a single accident results in two or more convictions requiring multiple periods of suspension, these periods of suspension shall run concurrently and not consecutively notwithstanding any other provision of this title or of law.
Three years after release from custody, a person may petition the court to reinstate his driving privileges. Upon consideration of factors indicating rehabilitation such as completion of an Alcohol and Drug Safety Action Program and participation in community service, the court may grant such reinstatement and order the department to issue a driver's license to the person upon that person's satisfactory completion of the requirements of Section 56-1-80 and Section 56-1-130.
(C) The department shall also revoke or suspend a driver's license for any other cause as may be required by other laws of this State."
Revocation of special restricted driver's license
SECTION 2. Section 56-1-745(C) of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:
"(5) If the holder of the special restricted driver's license issued pursuant to this section is convicted of a motor vehicle violation that mandates suspension of a driver's license, the special restricted driver's license is revoked and the remaining time for suspension for violation of the provisions of this section is imposed in addition to the suspension imposed for the subsequent offense."
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor except that the provisions of Section 1 shall apply to any person whose license has been suspended pursuant to Section 56-1-280(B).
