(a) Except as herein provided, the provisions of this subpart (H) shall not apply to any scrap metal processor. "Scrap metal processor" shall include any place of business and any place of deposit which has facilities for preparing and processing iron, steel and nonferrous metals into a form suitable for remelting by a foundry, steel mill or other remelter, and which does not buy or receive motor vehicles from any person, firm or corporation, except the holder of a motor vehicle recycler's license pursuant to section 14-67l, or a public agency or intermediate processor exempt from the provisions of said section pursuant to subsection (b) of section 14-67i, and which does not sell automobile parts for reuse as parts. Any scrap metal processor who retains on his premises for a period in excess of thirty days any motor vehicle junk which has not been processed into a form suitable for remelting as provided in this section shall be deemed to be operating or maintaining a motor vehicle recycler's business or motor vehicle recycler's yard, as defined in section 14-67g, and shall be subject to the provisions of section 14-67v. (1113)

(b) No scrap metal processor shall receive any motor vehicle unless such processor receives the following information: The make of the motor vehicle, the year the motor vehicle was manufactured, the engine number of the motor vehicle, if any, the identification number of the motor vehicle and the name and address of the person from whom such vehicle was received. If any sale of the motor vehicle occurred, the processor shall be given the date of the receipt and sale for the motor vehicle.

PART IV* DRIVERS' SCHOOLS (1117)(Text)

Sec. 14-69. License to conduct a drivers' school. (1118)(Text)

(a) No person shall engage in the business of conducting a drivers' school without being licensed by the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles. An application for a license shall be in writing and shall contain such information as the commissioner requires. Each applicant for a license shall be fingerprinted before such application is approved. The commissioner shall subject each applicant for a license or the renewal of a license to state and national criminal history records checks conducted in accordance with section 29-17a, and a check of the state child abuse and neglect registry established pursuant to section 17a-101k. If any such applicant has a criminal record or is listed on the state child abuse and neglect registry, the commissioner shall make a determination of whether to issue or renew a license to conduct a drivers' school in accordance with the standards and procedures set forth in section 14-44 and the regulations adopted pursuant to said section. If the application is approved, the applicant shall be granted a license upon the payment of a fee of three hundred fifty dollars and a deposit with the commissioner of cash or a bond of a surety company authorized to do business in this state, conditioned on the faithful performance by the applicant of any contract to furnish instruction, in either case in such amount as the commissioner may require, such cash or bond to be held by the commissioner to satisfy any execution issued against such school in a cause arising out of failure of such school to perform such contract. For each additional place of business of such school, the commissioner shall charge a fee of eighty-eight dollars. No license shall be required in the case of any board of education, or any public, private or parochial school, which conducts a course in driver education established in accordance with sections 14-36e and 14-36f. A license so issued shall be valid for one year. The commissioner shall issue a license certificate or certificates to each licensee, one of which shall be displayed in each place of business of the licensee. In case of the loss, mutilation or destruction of a certificate, the commissioner shall issue a duplicate upon proof of the facts and the payment of a fee of twenty dollars. (1119)

(b) The annual fee for the renewal of a license shall be three hundred fifty dollars and the annual renewal fee for each additional place of business shall be eighty-eight dollars. If the commissioner has not received a complete renewal application and all applicable renewal fees on or before the expiration date of an applicant's license, the commissioner shall charge such applicant, in addition to such renewal fees, a late fee of three hundred fifty dollars. (1120)

Sec. 14-70. Grounds for denial of application. (1121)(Text)

The commissioner may deny the application of any person for a license if he determines that: (a) Such applicant has made a material false statement or concealed a material fact in connection with his application; (b) such applicant, any officer, director, stockholder or partner, or any other person directly or indirectly interested in the business, was the former holder of a license under this part, or was an officer, director, stockholder or partner in a corporation or partnership which held a license under this part, which license was revoked or suspended by the commissioner; (c) such applicant or any officer, director, stockholder, partner, employee or any other person directly or indirectly interested in the business has failed to furnish satisfactory evidence of good moral character, reputation and fitness or is an employee of the Department of Motor Vehicles; (d) such applicant does not have a place of business; (e) such applicant is not the true owner of the drivers' school; or (f) the application is not accompanied by a certificate from the applicant's insurance carrier in such form as the commissioner shall prescribe showing that each motor vehicle used by such school has been insured for at least the minimum amounts required by subsection (a) of section 14-112 and such certificate shall stipulate that the insurance shall not be cancelled except upon ten days' written notice to the commissioner.
