AGO 1990 NO. 10 >

RCW 13.40.265(2)(a) provides that if a juvenile enters into a diversion agreement with a diversion unit concerning certain offenses, the Department of Licensing shall be notified.  Once notified RCW 46.20.265 requires the Department to revoke the driver's license of the juvenile.  These provisions do not apply when the diversion unit employs the counsel and release procedure authorized by RCW 13.40.080(11) instead of entering into a diversion agreement.
