188. In the cases provided for in sections 186 and 187, the judge seized of the suit may, in addition, declare the suspension, for a period not exceeding one year, of the driver’s permit of the person convicted.
Prior notice of the application for suspension shall be given to the person by the prosecutor, except where the parties are in the presence of the judge.
Where proof is made to the satisfaction of the judge that the person convicted must drive a specific automobile or a specific type of automobile in carrying on his principal means of livelihood, the judgment may allow such person to drive an automobile or such type of automobile solely in carrying on his principal means of livelihood. In such cases, the judge must immediately send the suspended permit to the Société and notify it that it may issue a special permit in accordance with the judgment so long as the ordinary conditions for obtaining a permit are met.
