RS 410.2 - International driver's license

A.(1) "International driving permit or driver's license" means a driving permit or driver's license that conforms to the provisions of the Convention on Road Traffic of 1949 and is presented with a valid driving permit or valid driver's license from the holder's country of residence.

(2) As defined in Paragraph (1) of this Subsection, an international driving permit or driver's license in this state shall be valid only as a non-commercial driver's license, shall not be valid and used in lieu of a learner's permit, commercial learner's permit, or commercial driver's license, and shall not be valid if the holder's driving privileges are suspended or revoked in this state or any other state.

B. It shall be unlawful for any person to issue an international driver's license in this state for use in this state or in any other state or territory of the United States.

C. The Department of Public Safety and Corrections, office of motor vehicles, may issue a cease and desist order to any person or business issuing an international driver's license in violation of this Section. Any such cease and desist order may be served by regular mail with a proof of mailing issued by the United States Postal Service, or hand delivered by a representative of the department. If the cease and desist order is served by mail with proof of mailing, it shall be deemed delivered on the seventh calendar day after the date affixed on the certificate or proof of mailing. The presumption of delivery in this Subsection shall not apply if the cease and desist order is returned as undeliverable.

D. If the person or business subject to the cease and desist order cannot be served or does not comply with the cease and desist order, the department may file a petition for injunctive relief as provided in the Code of Civil Procedure for injunctions in the district court. There shall be no suspensive appeal or stay of an order or judgment of the district court granting the department a preliminary or permanent injunction.

E. The department may promulgate rules and regulations necessary to implement and enforce the provisions of this Section.
