A new bill introduced this week would make selling appointments at the DMV illegal in the state of C

Assembly Bill 317 would make it unlawful for any person, firm or corporation to sell or offer for sale an appointment with the DMV.

A violation of the bill would be punishable as a misdemeanor and would hold a penalty that cannot exceed $2,500 per violation.

The penalties assessed and collected will be put into the State Transportation Fund as stated on the report.

Existing law establishes the Department of Motor Vehicles in the Transportation Agency and sets forth the powers and duties of the department, including, but not limited to, vehicle registration and the issuance and renewal of driver’s licenses.

The bill would require a penalty assessed and recovered under the bill to be deposited into the State Transportation Fund to the credit of the Motor Vehicle Account.

The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.

This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason
