Article 4. Probation of California Vehicle Code >> Division 6. >> Chapter 3. >> Article 4.
Whenever by any provision of this code the department has
discretionary authority to suspend or revoke the privilege of a
person to operate a motor vehicle, the department may in lieu of
suspension or revocation place the person on probation, the terms of
which may include a suspension as a condition of probation, issuing a
probationary license with such reasonable terms and conditions as
shall be deemed by the department to be appropriate.
The department, as a condition of probation, may require a
person whose privilege to operate a motor vehicle is subject to
suspension or revocation to attend, for not to exceed 24 hours, the
program authorized by the provisions of Section 1659.
The department shall have authority to terminate or to
modify the terms or conditions of any order of probation whenever
good cause appears therefor.
The department upon receiving satisfactory evidence of a
violation of any of the terms or conditions of probation imposed
under this code, may withdraw the probationary license and order the
suspension or revocation of the privilege to operate a motor vehicle.
Unless probation was imposed for a cause which is
continuing, the probationer, after not less than one year, may
request in writing the termination of the probation and the return of
his regular license. Upon a showing that there has been no violation
of the terms or conditions of the probation for a period of one year
immediately preceding the request, the department shall terminate
the probation and either restore to the person his driver's license
or require an application for a new license.
