Suspension or revocation of driving privileges of
nonresident or unlicensed person.
8-252a. Suspension or revocation of driving privileges of nonresident or unlicensed person. (a) Whenever a nonresident or a person who is unlicensed is convicted of any offense or is subject to a juvenile adjudication or an order of the division which would require the revocation or suspension of such person's driving privileges, if the person had been issued a driver's license by the division, such nonresident's privilege to operate a motor vehicle in this state or such unlicensed person's privilege of obtaining a driver's license issued by the division shall be revoked or suspended. Such revocation or suspension shall be for a period of time equal to the period of time that the driver's license of a licensed driver would be revoked or suspended. If the driving privileges of a licensed driver would be restricted by a court or the division, the driving privileges of a nonresident shall be restricted in the same manner. If the driving privileges of a licensed driver would be restricted by a court or the division, an unlicensed driver shall be eligible to apply for a driver's license during the period of restriction, but any license issued shall be subject to the same restrictions which would apply to a licensed driver.
(b) The division is hereby authorized to create a record with an identifying number and other identifying information, including address and date of birth, if known, for any nonresident or unlicensed driver subject to subsection (a). Such record shall include information showing any revocation, suspension or restriction entered under subsection (a) and the reason for such action in the same manner that records are maintained for licensed drivers, pursuant to K.S.A. 8-249, and amendments thereto. If any such person becomes a licensed driver, the information contained in such record shall be included in the person's driving record maintained by the division.
(c) The purpose of this section is to make nonresident and unlicensed drivers subject to the same driving sanctions as licensed residents.
(d) This section shall be part of and supplemental to the motor vehicle drivers' license act, article 2 of chapter 8 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto.
