Can I Get a Hardship License?

How Do I Get a Hardship License?

Driving without a license can lead to serious criminal consequences. If your driver’s license was suspended due to serious traffic violations, OVWI/DUI charges or designation as a habitual traffic offender, you might still have options for driving legally.

One such option is a hardship license, now called aspecialized driving permit, which will restore your driving privileges on a limited basis. Many people who did not qualify a few years ago for a restricted license may now qualify under the new laws for specialized driving privileges.
