The date of cancellation is the day on which the pocket card in the possession of the driver (which attests to the existence of the official school bus driver certificate on file with the county school bus garage) is surrendered to the Division of Motor Vehicles or its representative, or if the certificate or pocket card is not available, then that day upon which due notification is given to the immediate superior for whom the driver drives.  From this date any pocket card or certificate which may for any reason remain in the possession of the driver or any other person or institution shall be null and void.

The Driver Education Specialist shall mail a letter to any school bus driver who cannot be located, informing said driver of the cancellation of his school bus driver certificate.  The date of the letter shall be deemed the date of cancellation.  The use of the mailing address on the driving record sent to the Driver Education Specialist shall be deemed sufficient.  A copy of this letter shall be submitted to the Director of Transporta­tion.
