C. The department shall file all abstracts of court records of convictions and judgments it receives under the laws of this state and shall maintain convenient records of the abstracts or make suitable notations on the abstracts in order that an individual record of each licensee showing the convictions and judgments of the licensee and the traffic accidents in which the licensee has been involved is readily ascertainable and available for the consideration of the department on an application for renewal of a license and at other suitable times.

D. The department shall maintain the records pursuant to this section for five years after the application, suspension, revocation or abstract of a court record of conviction or judgment has become inactive.
