  390  overturned. If the revocation or suspension of the driver’s
  391  license was for a conviction for a violation of s. 817.234(8) or
  392  (9) or s. 817.505, an additional fee of $180 is imposed for each
  393  offense. The department shall collect and deposit the additional
  394  fee into the Highway Safety Operating Trust Fund at the time of
  395  reinstatement of the person’s driver’s license.
