    Sec. 6-306.6. Failure to pay traffic fines, penalties, or court costs.
    (a) Whenever any resident of this State fails to pay any traffic fine, penalty, or cost imposed for a violation of this Code, or similar provision of local ordinance, the clerk may notify the Secretary of State, on a report prescribed by the Secretary, and the Secretary shall prohibit the renewal, reissue or reinstatement of such resident's driving privileges until such fine, penalty, or cost has been paid in full. The clerk shall provide notice to the driver, at the driver's last known address as shown on the court's records, stating that such action will be effective on the 46th day following the date of the above notice if payment is not received in full by the court of venue.
    (a-1) Whenever any resident of this State who has made a partial payment on any traffic fine, penalty, or cost that was imposed under a conviction entered on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 93rd General Assembly, for a violation of this Code or a similar provision of a local ordinance, fails to pay the remainder of the outstanding fine, penalty, or cost within the time limit set by the court, the clerk may notify the Secretary of State, on a report prescribed by the Secretary, and the Secretary shall prohibit the renewal, reissue, or reinstatement of the resident's driving privileges until the fine, penalty, or cost has been paid in full. The clerk shall provide notice to the driver, at the driver's last known address as shown on the court's records, stating that the action will be effective on the 46th day following the date of the notice if payment is not received in full by the court of venue.
    (b) Except as provided in subsection (b-1), following receipt of the report from the clerk, the Secretary of State shall make the proper notation to the driver's file to prohibit the renewal, reissue or reinstatement of such driver's driving privileges. Except as provided in paragraph (2) of subsection (d) of this Section, such notation shall not be removed from the driver's record until the driver satisfies the outstanding fine, penalty, or cost and an appropriate notice on a form prescribed by the Secretary is received by the Secretary from the court of venue, stating that such fine, penalty, or cost has been paid in full. Upon payment in full of a traffic fine, penalty, or court cost which has previously been reported under this Section as unpaid, the clerk of the court shall present the driver with a signed receipt containing the seal of the court indicating that such fine, penalty, or cost has been paid in full, and shall forward forthwith to the Secretary of State a notice stating that the fine, penalty, or cost has been paid in full.
    (b-1) In a county with a population of 3,000,000 or more, following receipt of the report from the clerk, the Secretary of State shall make the proper notation to the driver's file to prohibit the renewal, reissue or reinstatement of such driver's driving privileges. Such notation shall not be removed from the driver's record until the driver satisfies the outstanding fine, penalty, or cost and an appropriate notice on a form prescribed by the Secretary is received by the Secretary directly from the court of venue, stating that such fine, penalty, or cost has been paid in full. Upon payment in full of a traffic fine, penalty, or court cost which has previously been reported under this Section as unpaid, the clerk of the court shall forward forthwith directly to the Secretary of State a notice stating that the fine, penalty, or cost has been paid in full and shall provide the driver with a signed receipt containing the seal of the court, indicating that the fine, penalty, and cost have been paid in full. The receipt may not be used by the driver to clear the driver's record.
    (c) The provisions of this Section shall be limited to a single action per arrest and as a post conviction measure only. Fines, penalty, or costs to be collected subsequent to orders of court supervision, or other available court diversions are not applicable to this Section.
    (d)(1) Notwithstanding the receipt of a report from the clerk as prescribed in subsections (a) and (e), nothing in this Section is intended to place any responsibility upon the Secretary of State to provide independent notice to the driver of any potential action to disallow the renewal, reissue or reinstatement of such driver's driving privileges.
    (2) Except as provided in subsection (b-1), the Secretary of State shall renew, reissue or reinstate a driver's driving privileges which were previously refused pursuant to this Section upon presentation of an original receipt which is signed by the clerk of the court and contains the seal of the court indicating that the fine, penalty, or cost has been paid in full. The Secretary of State shall retain such receipt for his records.
    (e) Upon receipt of notification from another state that is a member of the Nonresident Violator Compact of 1977, stating a resident of this State failed to pay a traffic fine, penalty, or cost imposed for a violation that occurs in another state, the Secretary shall make the proper notation to the driver's license file to prohibit the renewal, reissue, or reinstatement of the resident's driving privileges until the fine, penalty, or cost has been paid in full. The Secretary of State shall renew, reissue, or reinstate the driver's driving privileges that were previously refused under this Section upon receipt of notification from the other state that indicates that the fine, penalty, or cost has been paid in full. The Secretary of State shall retain the out-of-state receipt for his or her records.
