Section 221/2: Suspension of right to operate based upon violation of Sec. 32E of chapter 94C

Section 221/2. The registrar shall suspend, without a hearing, the license or right to operate of a person who is convicted of a violation of subsection (b), (c) or (c1/2) of section 32E of chapter 94C or adjudged a delinquent child by reason of having violated said subsection (b), (c) or (c1/2) of said section 32E of said chapter 94C; provided, however, that the period of such suspension shall not exceed 5 years from the date of conviction; and provided further, that the person may, after the completion of any time served, apply for and shall be granted a hearing before the registrar to request the issuance of a new license for employment or educational purposes or for any other hardship purpose for the balance of the license suspension. The registrar may issue such license under such terms or conditions as the registrar may prescribe. If the registrar denies the applicant's request for a hardship license, the registrar shall issue written findings supporting the denial.
