      NRS 483.448  Future driving privileges: Demerit points; suspension; hearing.

      1.  Except as otherwise provided in this

subsection, when a person deemed to have future driving privileges pursuant to NRS 483.447 has accumulated 3 or more demerit points,

but less than 12, the Department shall notify the person of this fact. If,

after the Department mails the notice, the person presents proof to the

Department that he or she has successfully completed a course of traffic safety

approved by the Department and a signed statement which indicates that the

successful completion of the course was not required pursuant to a plea

agreement, the Department shall cancel not more than 3 demerit points from the

person’s driving record. If such a person accumulates 12 or more demerit points

before completing the course of traffic safety, the person will not be entitled

to have demerit points cancelled upon the completion of the course but must

have future driving privileges suspended. A person deemed to have future

driving privileges may attend a course only once in 12 months for the purpose

of reducing demerit points. The 3 demerit points may only be cancelled from the

driver’s record of the person during the 12-month period immediately following

the driver’s successful completion of the course of traffic safety. The

provisions of this subsection do not apply to a person deemed to have future

driving privileges whose successful completion of a course of traffic safety

was required pursuant to a plea agreement.

      2.  Any reduction of demerit points

pursuant to this section applies only to the demerit record of the person

deemed to have future driving privileges and otherwise does not affect the

person’s driving record with the Department or insurance record.

      3.  Notwithstanding any provision of this

title to the contrary, if a person deemed to have future driving privileges

accumulates demerit points, the Department shall suspend those future driving

privileges:

      (a) For the first accumulation of 12 demerit

points during a 12-month period, for 6 months. Such a person is eligible for a

restricted license during this 6-month period.

      (b) For the second accumulation within 3 years of

12 demerit points during a 12-month period, for 1 year. Such a person is

eligible for a restricted license during this 1-year period.

      (c) For the third accumulation within 5 years of

12 demerit points during a 12-month period, for 1 year. Such a person is not

eligible for a restricted license during this 1-year period.

      4.  The Department shall suspend for 1 year

the future driving privileges of a person convicted of a sixth traffic offense

within a 5-year period if all six offenses have been assigned a value of 4 or

more demerit points. Such a person is not eligible for a restricted license during

this 1-year period.

      5.  If the Department determines by its

records that a person deemed to have future driving privileges is not eligible

for a driver’s license pursuant to this section, the Department shall notify

the person by mail of that fact.

      6.  Except as otherwise provided in

subsection 7, the Department shall suspend the future driving privileges of a

person pursuant to this section 30 days after the date on which the Department

mails the notice to the person required by subsection 5.

      7.  If a written request for a hearing is

received by the Department:

      (a) The suspension of the future driving

privileges of the person requesting the hearing is stayed until a determination

is made by the Department after the hearing.

      (b) The hearing must be held, within 45 days

after the request is received, in the county in which the person resides unless

the person and the Department agree that the hearing may be held in some other

county. The scope of the hearing must be limited to whether the records of the

Department accurately reflect the driving history of the person.

      NRS 483.473  Establishment of uniform system of demerit points; schedule of

demerits; assessment of points.

      1.  As used in this section, “traffic

violation” means conviction of a moving traffic violation in any municipal

court, justice court or district court in this State. The term includes a

finding by a juvenile court that a child has violated a traffic law or

ordinance other than one governing standing or parking. The term does not

include a conviction or a finding by a juvenile court of a violation of the

speed limit posted by a public authority under the circumstances described in

subsection 1 of NRS 484B.617.

      2.  The Department shall establish a

uniform system of demerit points for various traffic violations occurring

within this State affecting the driving privilege of any person who holds a

driver’s license issued by the Department and persons deemed to have future

driving privileges pursuant to NRS 483.447. The

system must be based on the accumulation of demerits during a period of 12

months.

      3.  The system must be uniform in its

operation, and the Department shall set up a schedule of demerits for each

traffic violation, depending upon the gravity of the violation, on a scale of

one demerit point for a minor violation of any traffic law to eight demerit

points for an extremely serious violation of the law governing traffic

violations. If a conviction of two or more traffic violations committed on a

single occasion is obtained, points must be assessed for one offense, and if

the point values differ, points must be assessed for the offense having the

greater point value. Details of the violation must be submitted to the

Department by the court where the conviction is obtained. The Department may

provide for a graduated system of demerits within each category of violations

according to the extent to which the traffic law was violated.

of traffic safety; limitations; suspension of license; cumulative period for

suspension; notice; hearing.

      1.  Except as otherwise provided in this

subsection, when a person who holds a driver’s license has accumulated 3 or

more demerit points, but less than 12, the Department shall notify the person

of this fact. If, after the Department mails the notice, the driver presents

proof to the Department that he or she has successfully completed a course of

traffic safety approved by the Department and a signed statement which

indicates that the successful completion of the course was not required

pursuant to a plea agreement, the Department shall cancel not more than 3

demerit points from the person’s driving record. If the driver accumulates 12

or more demerit points before completing the course of traffic safety, the

person will not be entitled to have demerit points cancelled upon the

completion of the course, but must have his or her license suspended. A person

may attend a course only once in 12 months for the purpose of reducing demerit

points. The 3 demerit points may only be cancelled from a driver’s record

during the 12-month period immediately following the driver’s successful

completion of the course of traffic safety. The provisions of this subsection do

not apply to a person whose successful completion of a course of traffic safety

was required pursuant to a plea agreement.

      2.  Any reduction of demerit points applies

only to the demerit record of the driver and does not affect the person’s

driving record with the Department or insurance record.

      3.  The Department shall use a cumulative

period for the suspension of licenses pursuant to subsection 1. The periods of

suspension are:

      (a) For the first accumulation of 12 demerit

points during a 12-month period, 6 months. A driver whose license is suspended

pursuant to this paragraph is eligible for a restricted license during the

suspension.

      (b) For the second accumulation within 3 years of

12 demerit points during a 12-month period, 1 year. A driver whose license is

suspended pursuant to this paragraph is eligible for a restricted license

during the suspension.

      (c) For the third accumulation within 5 years of

12 demerit points during a 12-month period, 1 year. A driver whose license is

suspended pursuant to this paragraph is not eligible for a restricted license

during the suspension.

      4.  The Department shall suspend for 1 year

the license of a driver who is convicted of a sixth traffic offense within 5

years if all six offenses have been assigned a value of four or more demerit

points. A driver whose license is suspended pursuant to this subsection is not

eligible for a restricted license during the suspension.

      5.  If the Department determines by its

records that the license of a driver must be suspended pursuant to this

section, it shall notify the driver by mail that his or her privilege to drive

is subject to suspension.

      6.  Except as otherwise provided in

subsection 7, the Department shall suspend the license 30 days after it mails

the notice required by subsection 5.

      7.  If a written request for a hearing is

received by the Department:

      (a) The suspension of the license is stayed until

a determination is made by the Department after the hearing.

      (b) The hearing must be held within 45 days after

the request is received in the county where the driver resides unless the

driver and the Department agree that the hearing may be held in some other

county. The scope of the hearing must be limited to whether the records of the

Department accurately reflect the driving history of the driver.

the driver to attend, at his or her own expense, a drivers’ training school

approved by the Department.

      NRS 483.480  Department may require examination before suspension or

revocation of license; no additional fee or examination for reinstatement under

certain circumstances.

      1.  The Department, having good cause to

believe that a licensed driver is incompetent or otherwise not qualified to be

licensed, may upon written notice of at least 5 days to the licensee require

the licensee to submit to an examination. Upon the conclusion of the

examination, the Department shall take action as may be appropriate and may

suspend or revoke the license of the person or permit the person to retain the

license, or may issue a license subject to restrictions as permitted under NRS 483.360 or restrictions as to the type or class of

vehicles that may be driven. Refusal or neglect of the licensee to submit to

the examination is grounds for suspension or revocation of the license.

      2.  Except for the suspension of a driver’s

license pursuant to subsection 3 of NRS 483.465,

the Department shall not charge an additional fee or require an additional

examination for the reinstatement of a revoked or suspended license if the

additional fee or examination arises out of the same offense for which the

license was previously revoked or suspended and the driver has previously

reinstated the license after that offense.

documentary evidence to satisfy the Department that a severe hardship exists

because the applicant has no alternative means of transportation and that the

severe hardship outweighs the risk to the public if the applicant is issued a

restricted license.

      2.  A person who has been ordered to

install a device in a motor vehicle pursuant to NRS 484C.460:

      (a) Shall install the device not later than 21

during which the person is not eligible for a license, if the person was

convicted of a first violation within 7 years of NRS 484C.110.

      3.  If the Department has received a copy

of an order requiring a person to install a device in a motor vehicle pursuant

to NRS 484C.460, the Department shall

not issue a restricted driver’s license to such a person pursuant to this section

unless the applicant has submitted proof of compliance with the order and

subsection 2.

      4.  Except as otherwise provided in NRS 62E.630, after a driver’s license

has been revoked or suspended pursuant to title 5 of NRS or NRS 392.148, the Department may issue a

restricted driver’s license to an applicant permitting the applicant to drive a

motor vehicle:

      (a) If applicable, to and from work or in the
