California Code, Vehicle Code - VEH § 13100

When used in reference to a driver's license, “cancellation” means that a driver's license certificate is terminated without prejudice and must be surrendered.  Any person whose license has been canceled may immediately apply for a license.  Cancellation of license may be made only when specifically authorized in this code, when application is made for a license to operate vehicles of a higher class, or when a license has been issued through error or voluntarily surrendered to the department.
