     (a) Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, a person may drive a commercial motor vehicle if the person has a commercial driver's license by any state of the United States and the District of Columbia or a province or territory of Canada or a state or federal agency of the United Mexican States in accordance with the minimum federal standards for the issuance of commercial motor vehicle driver licenses if the license is not suspended, revoked or canceled, if the person is not disqualified from driving a commercial motor vehicle or not subject to an "out-of-service" order.

     (b) The commissioner is authorized to suspend, revoke or cancel the privilege to operate a motor vehicle or disqualify the privilege to operate a commercial motor vehicle of any resident of this state or of a nonresident upon receiving notice of the conviction of such person in another state of an offense which, if committed in this state, would be grounds for the suspension, revocation or cancellation of the privilege to operate a motor vehicle or the disqualification of the privilege to operate a commercial motor vehicle.
