Occupational Licenses and Driving Restrictions

Persons who have been arrested on suspicion of DWI or DUI often find that they are forced to deal with legal restrictions even before their case has been resolved. One such penalty may include serious restrictions on driving privileges, including the revocation of a driver’s license, for a period of time following the person’s arrest.

Individuals who have been charged with DWI may be forced to apply for an occupational driver’s license in order to drive to work, school, and perform essential duties of the household. If your license has been revoked due to DWI charges, contact Dallas DWI attorney Mark T. Lassiter at (214) 845-7007 today
