By Committee on Federal and State Affairs

10             AN  ACT concerning the issuance of certain driver's licenses.
12       Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:
13             Section  1. (a) Upon submission of an application and payment of the
14       fees required by this section, the director of the division of motor vehicles
15       may issue a temporary restricted license to a person whose driver's license
16       has been revoked or suspended for a violation of K.S.A. 8-1002, 8-1567
17       or 8-1567a, and amendments thereto. Such temporary license shall allow
18       the person to drive to and from the person's home and specified places
19       at specified times which can be verified by the division and which are
20       required by the person's full-time or part-time employment, continuing
21       health care or the continuing health care of another who is dependent
22       upon the person, continuing education while enrolled in an educational
23       institution on a part-time or full-time basis and while pursuing a course
24       of study leading to a diploma, degree or other certification of successful
25       educational completion, substance abuse treatment and court-ordered
26       community service responsibilities. The director shall not issue a tem-
27       porary restricted driver's license to any person whose driver's license has
28       been revoked or suspended for a violation of K.S.A. 8-1002, 8-1567 or 8-
29       1567a, and amendments thereto, within six years preceding the date of
30       application for such license.
31             (b) This section shall not apply to a person whose driver's license was
32       revoked or suspended for a violation of K.S.A. 8-1002, 8-1567 or 8-1567a,
33       and amendments thereto, and which violation involved a death or serious
34       personal injury to a person other than the driver whose license was sus-
35       pended or revoked or to a person whose license is suspended or revoked
36       for another reason.
37             (c)  (1) A person holding a temporary restricted license issued under
38       this section shall not operate a motor vehicle for pleasure.
39             (2) A person holding a temporary restricted license issued under this
40       section shall not operate a commercial motor vehicle on a highway if a
41       commercial driver's license is required for the person's operation of the
42       commercial motor vehicle. This subsection shall not apply if the tempo-
43       rary restricted license was issued as a result of the operation of a vehicle


  1       other than a commercial motor vehicle by such person.
  2             (3) A person holding a temporary license issued by this section shall
  3       be prohibited from operating a school bus.
  4             (d) The director also shall issue to any person issued a temporary
  5       restricted license under this section a decal to be placed on the rear
  6       window of any vehicle operated by such person. Such decal shall indicate
  7       that the vehicle is being operated by a person holding a temporary re-
  8       stricted license issued under this section. The willful failure to display
  9       such decal shall be a class B misdemeanor and shall be grounds for rev-
10       ocation of the temporary restricted license.
11             (e) A nonrefundable fee of $50 shall accompany any application sub-
12       mitted pursuant to this section. Such fee shall be in addition to any other
13       fee imposed by law for the issuance of a driver's license.
14        Sec.  2. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its
15       publication in the statute book.
