a) A person who is convicted of operating a motor vehicle in violation of the restrictions imposed on an instruction permit shall have his/her driving privileges suspended by the Department. If a new driver's license is issued on or prior to the conviction date of the incoming conviction for a first offense of an instruction permit restriction violation, no action shall be taken against the individual by the Department.
b) A person who is arrested for a traffic offense prior to the initial issuance of a driver's license and is subsequently convicted of the offense shall be returned to instruction permit status. If the person is subsequently convicted of operating a motor vehicle in violation of the restrictions of the instruction permit, he or she shall have his or her driving privileges suspended by the Department. If the person has returned to driver's license status when the Department receives the incoming conviction for a first offense of an instruction permit restriction violation, no action shall be taken against the individual by the Department.
c) Miscellaneous suspensions shall not be considered prior suspensions for the purpose of this Section.
d) When considering prior convictions, only convictions for operating a motor vehicle in violation of restrictions on an instruction permit within seven years prior to the arrest date of the incoming conviction shall be considered.
e) Only those suspensions currently in effect or pending or suspensions or revocations cleared within seven years prior to the forthcoming suspension's effective date shall be considered as prior suspensions or revocations.
