(a) In any case in which the accused is convicted of an offense, upon the conviction of which the law requires or permits, revocation or suspension of the operator's or chauffeur's license of the person so convicted, the court shall order the surrender of such license, which shall remain in the custody of the court during the period of such revocation or suspension if such period does not exceed thirty (30) days, or until:
(1) The time allowed by law for appeal has elapsed, when it shall be forwarded to the commissioner; or
(2) An appeal is effected and proper bond posted, at which time it shall be returned to the accused.
