Reorganization of motor vehicle registration, licensing, and certificates of title statutes; segregation of criminal offenses and traffic offenses. Moves the criminal offenses related to registration, licensing, and certificates of title included within § 46.2-613 to § 46.2-612. The bill reorganizes these statutes so that § 46.2-612 contains only criminal offenses and § 46.2-613 contains only traffic infractions. The bill removes the authority of the court to dismiss a summons for a criminal offense related to the registration, licensing, and certificates of title when proof of compliance with the law is provided to the court on or before the court date. The bill otherwise retains the elements of and penalties for the offenses and infractions. This bill is a recommendation of the Committee on District Courts and is identical to HB 1711.
