Nevada Juvenile Justice
Sec. § 62E.630
Certain acts involving alcohol or controlled substance: Suspension or delay in issuance of driver’s license.


1.

Except as otherwise provided in this section, if a child is adjudicated delinquent for the unlawful act of using, possessing, selling or distributing a controlled substance, or purchasing, consuming or possessing an alcoholic beverage in violation of NRS 202.020, the juvenile court shall:

(a)

If the child possesses a drivers license, issue an order suspending the drivers license of the child for at least 90 days but not more than 2 years; or

(b)

If the child does not possess a drivers license and the child is or will be eligible to receive a drivers license within the 2 years immediately following the date of the order, issue an order prohibiting the child from receiving a drivers license for a period specified by the juvenile court which must be at least 90 days but not more than 2 years:

(1)

Immediately following the date of the order, if the child is eligible to receive a drivers license; or

(2)

After the date the child will be eligible to receive a drivers license, if the child is not eligible to receive a drivers license on the date of the order.

2.

If the child is already the subject of a court order suspending or delaying the issuance of the drivers license of the child, the juvenile court shall order the additional suspension or delay, as appropriate, to apply consecutively with the previous order.

3.

If the juvenile court finds that a suspension or delay in the issuance of the drivers license of a child pursuant to this section would cause or is causing a severe or undue hardship to the child or his or her immediate family and that the child is otherwise eligible to receive a drivers license, the juvenile court may order the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue a restricted drivers license to the child pursuant to NRS 483.490.

4.

If the juvenile court issues an order requiring the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue a restricted drivers license to a child pursuant to subsection 3, not later than 5 days after issuing the order, the juvenile court shall forward to the Department of Motor Vehicles a copy of the order.
