(a) In case the operator or the owner of a motor vehicle involved in an accident within
this State has no license or registration, or is a nonresident, he shall not be allowed
a license or registration until he has complied with the requirements of this act
to the same extent that would be necessary if, at the time of the accident, he had
held a license and registration.
(b) When a nonresident's operating privilege is suspended pursuant to section three
or section five of this act, 1 the director shall transmit a certified copy of the record of such action to the
official in charge of the issuance of licenses and registration certificates in the
State in which such nonresident resides, if the law of such other State provides for
action in relation thereto similar to that provided for in subsection (c) of this
(c) Upon receipt of such certification that the operating privilege of a resident
of this State has been suspended or revoked in any such other State pursuant to a
law providing for its suspension or revocation for failure to deposit security for
the payment of judgments arising out of a motor vehicle accident, under circumstances
which would require the director to suspend a nonresident's operating privilege had
the accident occurred in this State, the director shall suspend the license of such
resident if he was the operator, and all of his registrations if he was the owner
of a motor vehicle involved in such accident. Such suspension shall continue until such resident furnishes evidence of his compliance
with the law of such other State relating to the deposit of such security.
