Driver's licenses issued to persons convicted of driving under the influence. Prohibits the Department of Motor Vehicles from issuing or reinstating the driver's license of a person who has been convicted of driving under the influence or a related offense during the seven-year period following the conviction, unless the person provides proof that he has in effect a motor vehicle liability insurance policy with limits of $50,000 for injury or death of one person in one accident, $100,000 for injury or death of two or more persons in one accident, and $40,000 for damage to property.
