49-1208. Proof required upon certain convictions. (1) If a person is not licensed, but by final order or judgment is convicted of, or forfeits any bail or collateral deposited to secure an appearance for trial, or has entered a plea of guilty for, any offense requiring the suspension or revocation of the driver’s license, or for operating a motor vehicle upon the highways without being licensed to do so, no driver’s license shall be issued to that person and his driving privilege shall remain suspended or revoked until he gives and maintains proof of financial responsibility. Such person shall be required to verify proof of financial responsibility for a three (3) year period commencing with the last day of the suspension or revocation.

(2) Whenever the department or a court suspends, or the department revokes a resident’s driver’s license or nonresident’s driving privilege by reason of a conviction, forfeiture of bail, or upon a plea or finding of guilty, the license or privilege shall remain suspended or revoked unless the person shall have previously given or shall immediately give and maintain proof of financial responsibility. Such person shall be required to verify proof of financial responsibility for a three (3) year period commencing with the last day of the suspension or revocation.

(3) Any person who is convicted of violating the provisions of either section 49-1229, 49-1232 or 49-1428, Idaho Code, for the first time shall give and maintain proof of financial responsibility throughout the one (1) year period following the conviction. Any person convicted for a second or any subsequent time of violating the provisions of section 49-1229, 49-1232 or 49-1428, Idaho Code, within a five (5) year period, shall give and maintain proof of financial responsibility throughout the three (3) year period following such conviction. The department shall notify any person subject to this subsection of the requirements for maintaining proof of financial responsibility for a second and any subsequent conviction. The driver’s license and driving privileges shall remain suspended unless the person gives and maintains proof of financial responsibility throughout either the one (1) year or the three (3) year period following such conviction.

(4) Whenever a person is required to maintain proof of financial responsibility, and who is not a resident of Idaho, files and maintains proof of financial responsibility in his home state the department shall reinstate the person’s driving privileges as long as proof of financial responsibility is maintained in the person’s home state.
