Submit Written Comments to: Clark J. Holloway, P.O. Box 9030, Olympia, WA 98507-9030, e-mail cholloway@dol.wa.gov, fax (360) 586-8351, by July 7, 2005.

Assistance for Persons with Disabilities: Contact Clark J. Holloway by July 7, 2005, TTY (360) 664-0116.

Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: Amends WAC 308-104-014 to require that an application for a driver's license submitted by a person under the age of eighteen must include declarations by the person and the person's parent, guardian, or employer that they have read and understand the intermediate license restrictions.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: The intermediate license restrictions specified under RCW 46.20.075 are relatively new and somewhat complex. The department is authorized to require additional information on the application for a driver's license under the provisions of RCW 46.20.091 (1)(g). Requiring information from applicants under the age of eighteen and their parent, guardian, or employer indicating that they have read and understand the intermediate license restrictions will ensure that they are properly informed prior to the issuance of the license, and will increase traffic safety.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 46.20.091 (1)(g) and 46.01.110.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 46.20.091 and 46.20.075.

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Name of Proponent: Department of Licensing, governmental.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting: Clark Holloway, Highways-Licenses Building, Olympia, Washington, (360) 902-3846; Implementation and Enforcement: Denise Movius, Highways-Licenses Building, Olympia, Washington, (360) 902-3850.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. A small business economic impact statement is not required pursuant to RCW 19.85.030 (1)(a). Proposed rule has no fiscal impact.

A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. RCW 34.05.328 does not apply to this proposed rule under the provisions of RCW 34.05.328 (5)(a)(i).
