(a) Whenever the commissioner, or other authorized person, under any law of this state
suspends or revokes the operator's or chauffeur's license of any person because of
the conviction of such person, the commissioner shall also suspend any and all of
the registration certificates and registration plates issued for any motor vehicle
registered in the name of the person so convicted as owner except that he shall not
suspend such evidence of registration, unless otherwise required by law, in the event
such owner has previously given, or shall immediately give and thereafter maintain
proof of his financial responsibility in the future in the manner hereinafter specified
in this article with respect to each and every motor vehicle owned and registered
by such person.
(b) Such suspensions or revocation shall remain in effect and the commissioner shall
not issue to any such person any new or renewal license or register in the name of
such person any motor vehicle, until permitted under this chapter and not then unless
and until such person gives proof of his financial responsibility in the future as
hereinafter provided in this article. Reversal on appeal of any conviction because of which any license or registration
has been suspended pursuant to this article shall entitle the holder to the restoration
thereof forthwith without proof of financial responsibility.
(c) For the purpose of this article the term conviction shall include a forfeiture
of bail or collateral deposited to secure a defendant's appearance in court, which
forfeiture has not been vacated, upon a charge which upon conviction of the defendant
requires or authorizes the commissioner to suspend or revoke the license of such person.
