The registrar of motor vehicles upon issuing a driver's license, a motorcycle operator's endorsement, a driver's license renewal, or the renewal of any other license issued under this chapter, whenever good cause appears, may impose restrictions suitable to the licensee's driving ability with respect to the type of or special mechanical control devices required on a motor vehicle that the licensee may operate, or any other restrictions applicable to the licensee that the registrar determines to be necessary.
When issuing a license to a person with impaired hearing, the registrar shall require that a motor vehicle operated by the person be equipped with two outside rear vision mirrors, one on the left side and the other on the right side.
The registrar either may issue a special restricted license or may set forth any restrictions applicable to the license upon the usual license form.
The registrar, upon receiving satisfactory evidence of any violation of the restrictions of any license, after an opportunity for a hearing in accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code, may impose upon the offender a class D suspension of the license from the range specified in division (B)(4) of section 4510.02 of the Revised Code.
