[ Approved by Governor  September 23, 2018. Filed with Secretary of State  September 23, 2018. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2685, Lackey. Driving privilege: minors.
Existing law authorizes the juvenile court to suspend or order a delay in the issuance of the driving privilege, for one year, of a minor who is an habitual truant, as defined, or who is adjudged to be a ward of the court, as prescribed. Existing law requires the juvenile court, when determining whether to suspend or delay a minor’s driving privilege, to consider whether a personal or family hardship exists that requires the minor to have a driver’s license for his or her own, or a member of his or her family’s, employment or for medically related purposes.
This bill would repeal those provisions, and would provide that any court order to suspend, restrict, or delay a minor’s driving privilege issued pursuant to those provisions prior to January 1, 2019, shall remain in full effect, as specified.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 13202.7 of the Vehicle Code is repealed.

SEC. 2.

 Any court order to suspend, restrict, or delay a minor’s driving privilege issued pursuant to former Section 13202.7 of the Vehicle Code prior to January 1, 2019, shall remain in full effect in accordance with the terms of the order after the repeal of that section pursuant to this act.
