A New Hampshire bill signed into
law by Gov. John Lynch is intended to close a legal loophole in order to deny a
driver’s license to anyone who uses false papers to get one.
The new law, previously HB242,
takes effect Jan. 1, 2006.
Under previous state law,
suspension or revocation of a driver’s license was allowed if someone lied on
the license application.
The new rule makes suspension or revocation mandatory. It
applies to anyone who used “fraudulent documents” to try to get a license.
person would later need permission from the state before he or she could even
apply for a license.
