Suspension of driver's license for nonpayment of fines or costs. Repeals the requirement that the driver's license of a person convicted of any violation of the law who fails or refuses to provide for immediate payment of fines or costs be suspended. The bill also removes a provision allowing the court to require a defendant to present a summary prepared by the Department of Motor Vehicles of the other courts in which the defendant also owes fines and costs. The bill requires the Commissioner of the Department of Motor Vehicles to return or reinstate any person's driver's license that was suspended prior to July 1, 2019, solely for nonpayment of fines or costs, provided that such person has paid the applicable reinstatement fee. Amends § 19.2-258.1, § 19.2-354, § 46.2-1200.1, § 46.2-301, § 46.2-361, § 46.2-391.1, § 46.2-416, § 46.2-819.1, § 46.2-819.3, § 46.2-819.3:1, § 46.2-819.5, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
