  • notice
  • hearing.


The Department may suspend the license of a driver without preliminary hearing upon a showing by its records or other sufficient evidence that the licensee:


Has committed an offense for which mandatory revocation of license is required upon conviction;


Has been involved as a driver in any crash resulting in the death or personal injury of another or serious property damage;


Is physically or mentally incompetent to drive a motor vehicle;


Has permitted an unlawful or fraudulent use of his or her license;


Has committed an offense in another state which if committed in this State would be grounds for suspension or revocation; or


Has failed to comply with the conditions of issuance of a restricted license.


Upon suspending the license of any person as authorized in this section, the Department shall immediately notify the person in writing, and upon his or her request shall afford the person an opportunity for a hearing as early as practical within 20 days after receipt of the request in the county wherein the person resides unless the person and the Department agree that the hearing may be held in some other county. The Administrator, or an authorized agent thereof, may issue subpoenas for the attendance of witnesses and the production of relevant books and papers, and may require a reexamination of the licensee in connection with the hearing. Upon the hearing, the Department shall either rescind its order of suspension or, for good cause, extend the suspension of the license or revoke it.
