III. Failure to authorize Selective Service registration as provided in this section shall not be a basis for denying driving privileges to the applicant. IV. The commissioner may charge reasonable fees pursuant to RSA 260:14, XIII, for the collection and release of information to the Selective Service System under this section, provided that no such fee shall be charged to the applicant authorizing registration.]
