(d) Any action of the department in suspending, canceling, revoking, or failing to renew a license issued pursuant to this chapter may be reviewed by any court of competent jurisdiction.
(e) The department may, pending a hearing, temporarily suspend the license or permit of any traffic violator school owner, operator, or instructor for a period of not more than 30 days if the director finds that the public interest so requires. In that case, a hearing shall be held and a decision issued within 30 days after issuance of the notice of temporary suspension.
