§ 46.2-320.2. Other grounds for suspension; nonpayment of fees owed to local correctional facilities or regional jails.

A. The Commissioner may enter into an agreement with a local correctional facility or regional jail whereby the Department shall suspend or refuse to renew the driver's license of any person upon receipt of notice from the local correctional facility or regional jail that (i) the person is delinquent in payment of fees imposed under § 53.1-131.3, (ii) a judgment for such fees has been issued by a court of competent jurisdiction, and (iii) a court of competent jurisdiction has, for good cause, ordered the suspension or nonrenewal of the driver's license of the person in accordance with the provisions of this section. A suspension or refusal to renew authorized pursuant to this section shall be effective upon notice to the Department by the local correctional facility or regional jail. Notification to the Department by the local correctional facility or regional jail shall be made by electronic communication, which shall include copies of the judgment and court order for suspension or nonrenewal of the person's driver's license and provide the person's most current mailing address.

B. The Department shall not renew a driver's license or terminate a license suspension imposed pursuant to this section until it has received from the local correctional facility or regional jail a notification that the person has (i) paid the delinquency in full or (ii) reached an agreement with the local correctional facility or regional jail to satisfy the delinquency within an acceptable period. Notification to the Department by the local correctional facility or regional jail shall be made by electronic communication and shall be made on the same work day that the payment or agreement required by clause (i) or (ii) is made.

C. Any person whose license is suspended pursuant to subsection A may petition the district court of the jurisdiction where he resides or wherein the jail or correctional facility is located for the issuance of a restricted driver's license for a period not to exceed one year for any of the purposes set forth in subsection E of § 18.2-271.1. The district court may, for good cause shown, issue such a restricted permit.
