Sec. 25-100. Suspension of operator's etc., license upon conviction of reckless driving—Generally.
(a) In addition to the penalties for reckless driving prescribed in section 25-151 and except in those cases for which a revocation of license is provided in Code of Virginia, paragraph (e) of section 46.1-417 any court may suspend any license issued to a convicted person under Code of Virginia, Chapter 5 (section 46.1-348 et seq.) Title 46.1, for a period of not less than ten (10) days nor more than six (6) months, and such court shall require the convicted person to surrender his license so suspended to the court where it shall be disposed of in accordance with section 25-104.
(b) If a person convicted has not obtained the license required by such chapter, or is a nonresident, the court may direct in the judgment of conviction that such person shall not, for a period of not less than ten (10) days or more than six (6) months as may be prescribed in the judgment, drive or operate any motor vehicle in this state. The court or the clerk of court shall transmit the license to the commissioner along with the report of the conviction required to be sent to the division. Where the conviction is a second conviction which will require revocation under Code of Virginia, section 46.1-417, the court shall suspend the operator's or chauffeur's license of such person and thereupon transmit the same to the division of motor vehicles as provided by law.
