Subpart 1.

Class D license eligibility.

A person who is disqualified from holding a commercial driver's license but whose license is not otherwise under suspension, revocation, or cancellation and denial, must be issued a class D license. The class D license is valid until its expiration date or the commercial driver's license is reinstated, whichever is earlier, if the driver's privileges are not suspended, revoked, or canceled and denied, at any time during that period. If the class D license expires during the disqualification period, the person has the option of paying the commercial driver's license fee at the time of renewal for the classification under disqualification, but commercial motor vehicle privileges must not be reinstated until the requirements of part 7503.2800 are fulfilled.

Subp. 2.

Obtaining paper class D license.

A person who has been disqualified from operating commercial motor vehicles and is eligible for a class D license under subpart 1, will be issued a temporary class D license with the notice of disqualification. A paper license will be mailed by the department to the person at no cost. A person who has received notice of disqualification from a peace officer under part 7503.2500, subpart 1, may bring the notice of disqualification to a driver's license examination station where a paper record of examination will be completed by an examiner at no cost. This record will serve as a 90-day temporary license for the operation of class D vehicles only. If the period of disqualification exceeds 90 days, a paper class D license will be issued to the person by mail to the address on department records.

Subp. 3.

Obtaining class D license card.

A person who would prefer a class D license card must apply for a duplicate class D license. Duplicate license fees must be paid and a receipt will be issued to the person showing the existence of class D driving privileges. The class D license card will be mailed to the person when it has been manufactured. A minimum of 90 days must be remaining in the disqualification period before a class D license card will be issued.

Subp. 4.

Class A, B, or C license status.

The disqualified person will receive the original class A, B, or C license after fulfilling the reinstatement requirements under part 7503.2800 unless the license has expired and more than one year has elapsed since the expiration date. If the license has expired and more than one year has elapsed, the person must reapply and retest for a class A, B, or C license.
