16.40.120 Driver Permit Renewals; Consequences of Failure to Renew.

A.  Driver permits must be renewed every 12 months from the date of issuance.

 

B.  Every 2 years from the date of the initial permit, drivers must successfully complete all driver safety classes as described in Subsection 16.40.090 F.  In addition, the City will conduct a review of the driver’s criminal history and DMV records during this time.

 

C.  The following information, certificate of completion and payment amount must be submitted to the Bureau no less than 1 month prior to the renewal date:

 

1.  Updated file information if any information in the original application has changed;

 

2.  Payment of the renewal fee as outlined in the Fee Table in Section 16.40.590.

 

3.  Certificate of completion of a Bureau-approved driver safety class as described in Subsection 16.40.090 F.

 

D.  Permits will not be renewed unless the driver is in compliance with the City’s Business License Tax Law, Chapter 7.02, if applicable.

 

E.  Except as provided in Subsection 16.40.120 B., permits will not be renewed if the driver fails to satisfy any condition that would have been grounds to deny the initial permit, including any criminal activity or driving crimes/violations.

 

F.  Permits will not be renewed if the driver has more than five assessed civil penalties or more than $4,500 in assessed civil penalty fines in the 12 months prior to the renewal date. 

 

G.  If a driver fails to timely pay the permit renewal fee, timely provide the renewal information required by Subsection 16.40.120 C., or fails to timely complete any training course as required by Subsection 16.40.120 B., the permit expires and becomes void. Voided driver permits require the former permittee to file an initial permit application and pay all necessary fees as outlined in Section 16.40.090 or, if applicable, Section 16.40.080 (pedicabs) to obtain a valid permit.
