32:57.1, 863, or 863.1.

(2) "Delinquent debt" means a debt that is sixty days or more past due.

(3) "Final debt" means the amount due is no longer negotiable and that the debtor

has no further right of administrative and judicial review.

(4) "Office of motor vehicles" means the Department of Public Safety and

Corrections, office of motor vehicles.

B. The office of motor vehicles shall refer a final delinquent debt for which a debtor
