§6205. Certificate as evidence

A certificate of the commissioner, deputy commissioner or Chief of the Bureau of Marine Patrol stating what the records of the department show shall be admissible as evidence in all courts as proof of the department records. A certificate stating that the records do not show that a person held a license shall be prima facie evidence that the person did not hold the license on the date specified in the certificate. The certified copy shall be admissible in evidence on the testimony of a officer that he received the certificate after requesting it by telephone or otherwise from the department. No further foundation shall be necessary for the admission of the certificate. [1979, c. 541, Pt. B, §73 (AMD).]
