Tow truck drivers; criminal history. Authorizes the Department of Criminal Justice Services, at its discretion, to issue a tow truck driver registration to a person who was convicted of a violent crime or a crime involving the driving of a tow truck provided that such conviction occurred more than 15 years prior to the date of application and that all conditions of probation or parole related to such conviction have been satisfied.
