AN ACT TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING SECTION 20-7-1333 SO AS TO AUTHORIZE THE FAMILY COURT TO SUSPEND OR RESTRICT THE DRIVER'S LICENSE OF A CHILD ADJUDICATED DELINQUENT OR FOUND IN CONTEMPT OF COURT OR IN VIOLATION OF A TERM OR CONDITION OF PAROLE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Driver's license suspended or revoked for status or criminal offense
SECTION 1. The 1976 Code is amended by adding:
"Section 20-7-1333. (A) If a child is adjudicated delinquent for a status offense or is found in violation of a court order relating to a status offense, the court may suspend or restrict the child's driver's license until the child's seventeenth birthday.
(B) If a child is adjudicated delinquent for violation of a criminal offense or is found in violation of a court order relating to a criminal offense or is found in violation of a term or condition of probation, the court may suspend or restrict the child's driver's license until the child's eighteenth birthday.
(C) If the court suspends the child's driver's license, the child must submit the license to the court, and the court shall forward the license to the Department of Public Safety for license suspension. However, convictions not related to the operation of a motor vehicle shall not result in increased insurance premiums.
(D) If the court restricts the child's driver's license, the court may restrict the child's driving privileges to driving only to and from school or to and from work or as the court considers appropriate. Upon the court restricting a child's driver's license, the child must submit the license to the court and the court shall forward the license to the Department of Public Safety for reissuance of the license with the restriction clearly noted.
(E) Notwithstanding the definition of a `child' as provided for in Section 20-7-390, the court may suspend or restrict the driver's license of a child under the age of seventeen until the child's eighteenth birthday if subsection (B) applies.
(F) Upon suspending or restricting a child's driver's license under this section, the family court judge shall complete a form provided by and which must be remitted to the Department of Public Safety."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 20th day of May, 1996.
