Cal. Veh. Code Sec. 16370 Section 16370 concerns the Suspension of driving privilege and provides in pertinent part:
“The department shall suspend the privilege of any person to operate a motor vehicle upon receiving a certified copy of a judgment, or a certified copy of the register of actions (or a comparable court record of another jurisdiction) in an action resulting in a judgment for damages, and a certificate of facts relative to the judgment, on a form provided by the department, indicating that the person has failed for a period of 30 days to satisfy a judgment rendered against him or her.”
(Ca. Veh. Code Sec. 16370)
This form is required where the judgment is for more than $1,000 in property damage ($750 or more for accidents prior to January 1, 2017). When the form is received, the Department of Motor Vehicles will suspend the judgment debtor's license for up to six years.
The California Compulsory Financial Responsibility Law provides that vehicle owners and/or drivers must be financially responsible for damages and/or injuries caused by the ownership or operation of their motor vehicle if that vehicle is involved in an automobile accident.
The party who is not at fault for the accident (unless compensated for damages and/or injuries), has the right to sue in civil court to recover monetary damages to property and/or for injuries resulting from the accident.
If the court awards a civil judgment against the "at fault party" (judgment debtor), and that party fails within 30 days to satisfy the judgment award, the California Vehicle Code (CVC) allows Department of Motor Vehicles to suspend the person's driving privilege (Cal. Veh. Code Sec. 16370).
