If this is the first time that your license has been suspended you can request to obtain an “Occupational Driver’s License”. Under this license you will be allowed to drive up to 12 hours every day for your work, school, and household duties. These 12 hours can differ every day and they do not need to be continuous. The only two limitations you will have are as follows:
• You will not be allowed to drive for more than 12 hours in one day.
• You will have to specify what counties you will be driving in when you issue an occupational driver’s license. You won’t be allowed to drive outside these areas.
Depending upon the rules of the local court, this license can usually be issued within 2 days-6 weeks.
