(b) Except as provided in subdivision (c) of this section, hearings shall be commenced within the following time limitations:
(1) for a vehicle safety hearing, 12 months from the filing of a complaint or, where no complaint is filed, from the initiation of the department's investigation;
(2) for a chemical test refusal hearing, six months from the date the department receives notice of refusal;
(3) for a hearing to investigate a fatal accident, 12 months from the date of death;
(4) for any other hearing not required by law, one year form the department's receipt of the facts which give rise to the hearing; and

(e) Any time following a general audit of a facility, during which a facility is given an opportunity to correct deficiencies noted in such audit, shall not be considered in calculating the time limitations set forth in subdivision (b) of this section.
