A DUI conviction comes with serious consequences. But, a suspended license does not have to be a detriment to your well-being. Even if you have been convicted of DUI and had your license suspended, you can get a hardship license under specific circumstances. Among the cases where you may qualify:
Chemical Dependency Counseling. If you will be unable to fulfill your commitment to a 12-step or other drug or alcohol dependence program without your driver’s license, you can qualify for a hardship license to get to your meetings.
Employment. If you cannot get to your job without driving, you could be granted driving privileges to get to work and back.
Homemaker’s commitments. Are you a stay-at-home parent who has to transport a student to school? Would a dependent’s nutritional needs be compromised if you were unable to drive? You can qualify for driving privileges to fulfill these obligations.
Education. If you are a student at a post-secondary educational facility — in other words, a 2-year, 4-year or certificate program — you can qualify for a hardship license so that you can continue to attend your classes and work toward completing your education.
To qualify, you must not have had a conviction of driving under twice the legal limit or more within the past 12 months.
