A STUDY OF ADMINISTRATIVE HEARINGS CONDUCTED BY STATE DRIVER LICENSING AGENCIES. VOLUME I

The report, containing two volumes, documents the results of a study of administrative hearings conducted by driver licensing agencies as part of their procedures in withdrawing drivers' licenses. Current practices of these agencies, as determined through a nationwide survey and observations of selected State operations, were compared with the anticipated requirements of due process to evaluate for compliance with these legal precepts. The first volume contains the findings of the research, a summary of due process requirements, the evaluation for provision of due process, and recommendations for improvements. The second volume includes the results of the nationwide survey and of the visits to selected States. It also contains the paper written by Professor Robert Force of the Tulane School of Law titled Procedural Due Process Requirements in Administrative Suspension and Revocation of Drivers' Licenses, which summarized his research of case law and determination of applicable due process requirements that were used in the evaluation of current practices.
