Chapter 037 : Driver License Compact

(Cite as: 23 V.S.A. § 3906)
  • § 3906. Applications for new licenses—Article V

    Upon application for a license to drive, the licensing authority in a party state shall determine whether the applicant has ever held, or is the holder of, a license to drive issued by any other party state. The licensing authority in the state where application is made shall not issue a license to drive to the applicant if:

    (1) the applicant has held a license, but the same has been suspended by reason, in whole or in part, of a violation and if the suspension period has not terminated;

    (2) the applicant has held a license, but it has been revoked by reason, in whole or in part, of a violation; and if the revocation has not terminated, except that after the expiration of one year from the date the license was revoked, the person may make application for a new license if permitted by law. The licensing authority may refuse to issue a license to the applicant if after investigation, the licensing authority determines that it will not be safe to grant to the person the privilege of driving a motor vehicle on the public highways;

    (3) the applicant is the holder of a license to drive issued by another party state and currently in force unless the applicant surrenders the license. (Added 1987, No. 62, § 1.)
