2015 Senate Bill 42: Revise commercial drivers license detail

Public Act 11 of 2015

Introduced by Sen. Tom Casperson (R) on January 27, 2015
To revise a variety of details in the state law prescribing commercial drivers license standards, procedures and penalties. Among the provisions are prohibitions against fraudulent license and permit testing and fraudulently obtaining a commercial driver license. The bill also modifies details of the graduated drivers license system for new non-commercial drivers, which would apply to traffic violations before a person gets a regular license. Finally, it reduces the Secretary of State's discretion to not issue an offensive "vanity" license plate, which comes in response to a recent free speech lawsuit.   Official Text and Analysis.
