Obtaining Occupational Driver's License

Work Permits or Hardship Licenses

There may be defenses in your case to challenge your driver's license suspension. Even if your driver's license is suspended, many drivers are eligible for an occupational driver's licenses. These permit individuals to drive for essential need purposes only. This means that the individual who receives the occupational driver's license can only drive for the purpose of going to work or school, or for emergency needs such as medical.

Immediate action must be taken to protect your driving privileges. At the Law Offices of Tim Powers, our Denton County DWI lawyers can show you how to preserve your ability to drive, even if there are certain restrictions. Not being able to drive can affect your daily life and force you to make adjustments, but this permit can keep you mobile for your most important needs.

Understand Your Options

What are the strengths and weaknesses of your case? There are multiple ways to defend your driver's license suspension or request an occupational driver's license. We consider the following questions:

  • Did the officer have a valid reason to stop you?
  • Can the breath test be ordered not admissible in court?
  • How would a refusal to the breath test affect your case?
  • Can steps be taken to provide you with a driving permit for work?
  • Will a review of video tape reveal defenses?
  • Can your case be handled without your appearance at every setting on the court's docket?
  • Can your bond be reduced or returned?
  • Can your case be reduced by the prosecutor to a charge other than DWI?
  • Can a "continuance" of your court date be obtained to investigate your options?
