How Does an Occupational Driver's License Work?

An occupational driver's license is a restricted license which, in certain circumstances, can be obtained by individuals who have had their regular driver's license suspended due to a DWI or other offense. This type of driver's license allows an individual to use his or her non-commercial vehicle for the purpose of getting to and from work, for school-related activities and during the performance of essential household tasks. Occupational licenses will not generally be granted to commercial drivers whose driving privileges have been suspended or revoked. A waiting period will be enforced for those individuals whose license was suspended as a result of a DWI conviction or an alcohol-related offense, so it is advised that you seek legal counsel at once.

Losing the right to drive can have a devastating effect on a person's personal life, as well as his or her family and work.
