4738.071 Provisional status of license.

When a person is first issued a license under this chapter, the license shall have provisional status for a period of one hundred eighty days from the date of issuance. Not later than one hundred eighty days after the date of issuance of a provisional license, the registrar of motor vehicles shall inspect or cause to be inspected the place of business of any person who is the holder of the license. If the person conducting the inspection determines that the license holder has complied with all the requirements with which holders of licenses issued under this chapter are required to comply, he shall notify the license holder of that fact. The notification initially may be verbal, but shall be followed by a written notice. The person conducting the inspection also shall notify the registrar of that fact, and the registrar shall send the license holder written notice informing him that his license no longer has provisional status and shall remain valid until its expiration date unless it is suspended or revoked in accordance with this chapter. If the person conducting the inspection determines that the license holder has not complied with all the requirements with which holders of licenses issued under this chapter are required to comply, he shall notify the license holder of that fact. The notification initially may be verbal, but shall be followed by a written notice. The person conducting the inspection also shall notify the registrar of that fact, and the registrar shall send the license holder written notice informing him that his license is revoked and that he may appeal the revocation to the motor vehicle salvage dealer's licensing board. Immediately upon revoking the provisional license of the license holder, the registrar shall enter a final order together with his findings and certify the same to the motor vehicle salvage dealer's licensing board.
