Occupational Driver's License

Legally Driving While your License is Actively Suspended

There are many different reasons your Texas driver's license could be suspended. You may have a conviction suspension, an ALR suspension, or maybe you don't know why your license is suspended. Most of us need to drive every day for appointments, work, school, errands, and other household duties. An Occupational Driver's License, if granted by the Court, allows you to drive for essential driving during an active license suspension. This means that you will still be able to drive to and from work, school, the grocery store, doctor's appointments, and more. 

To obtain an Occupational Driver's License, you must petition a court that has jurisdiction to grant it. Once granted by the Court, it must also be approved by the Texas Department of Public Safety. There are different requirements for Occupational Licenses based on the Court it lands in, the type of suspension, the duration of the suspension, the current status of the license eligibility with DPS, and more. This can be a complicated process, and you want to be sure that it is done correctly so that you are not at risk for diving on an invalid license. 

At Vitz Law, we are experts in Occupational Driver's Licenses and practice this representation frequently. We stay up to date on Court requirements, DPS requirements, and take the time required to make sure our clients' lives aren't put on hold by a license suspension.
