Occupational Driver's License in Texas
Fort Worth DWI Defense Attorneys
Being convicted of a
DWI can be devastating. Even a first offense can bring thousands of dollars
in fines, jail time, and a license suspension. It is that suspension of
your driver's license that can sometimes prove most debilitating,
keeping you from caring for you and your family's needs. Without the
ability to drive, your employment status can be at risk and serious financial
troubles can arise. Don't fret unnecessarily over these worries, as
relief may be available in your case.
In Texas, if your license has been suspended or revoked for certain offences
(including DWI), you could be eligible for an occupational driver's
license (ODL). An ODL is a special restricted license that allows use
of a motor vehicle in relation to your job, education or for essential
household duties. Texas law states that an ODL holder can drive up to
4 hours per day, but that can be extended to 12 with a judge's permission.
The process for obtaining an occupational driver's license can be
complex and confusing. Petition to the district or county court, paperwork,
fees and deadlines can be overwhelming.
