Driver's license and special identification card designations; emergency contact program. Permits the Department of Motor Vehicles, upon the request of the applicant and presentation of a signed statement by a licensed physician confirming the applicant's condition, to designate an intellectual disability or autism spectrum disorder on the applicant's driver's license and to designate hearing or speech impairment, insulin-dependent diabetes, or an intellectual disability or autism spectrum disorder on the applicant's special identification card. Current law allows the designation of a hearing or speech impairment or a condition of insulin-dependent diabetes on a person's driver's license. The bill also provides that effective January 1, 2015, DMV may establish an emergency contact program to allow customers to give DMV an emergency contact person and information to keep in their customer record to be made available to law-enforcement officers in emergency situations.
