About the Driver Control Board
The purpose of the Board is to carry out an adjudicative role in determining if an individual may hold a driver's licence. Individuals may be referred to the Board by a judge or the Registrar of Motor Vehicles. The Board also acts as an independent appeal board for drivers who have been refused a licence or whose licence has been suspended by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles. The Board has the power to invoke an indefinite driver's licence suspension or prescribe any measure or course of remedial education or treatment. The Board's decisions may only be overruled on subsequent appeal to the Board or by a court judge.
