Steps for Obtaining an Occupational License

When you are pulled over for suspected drunk driving it is likely you will be asked to submit to a test in order to indicate your estimated blood alcohol concentration level in order to determine whether or not you can legally drive. Often, your refusal to submit to this test or your results will result in a drunk driving charge and instant driver’s license suspension. This can be a great inconvenience. Luckily, there are steps you can take to seek and obtain an occupational license and retain the ability to drive.

How to Seek an Occupational Driver’s License

An occupational driver’s license is to help those who have had their licenses suspended not lose the ability to make a living, transport family members, travel to school, and carry out other important responsibilities. In order to obtain a temporary license of this sort one must:

  • Make a petition to the court, either country or district, where you received your DWI/DUI conviction or charge
  • Once approved, you will have to gather important materials, such as a payment for the license and proof of insurance
  • These materials must be sent to the Department of Public Safety
  • You will then be sent a temporary occupation license which will shortly be followed by your temporary occupational driver’s license

This process can be complicated, making it important to have the assistance of an experienced professional when attempting it.
