OCCUPATIONAL DRIVERS LICENSE

More and more, our office is receiving inquiries from individuals who are unable to renew their driver’s license. So often, drivers do not realize that their licenses have been suspended because their mailing address is not current with Texas Department of Public Safety, and they do not receive notice of the forthcoming suspension. The State of Texas is becoming increasingly more diligent in suspending, revoking, cancelling, or denying a driver’s license.

In such a situation, a restricted driver’s license is available based on eligibility. Such a license is called an Occupational Driver’s License or ODL.

An Occupational Driver’s License is a special restricted license issued to persons whose license has been suspended or revoked for certain offenses, such as too many traffic ticket points on the driving record or a conviction for the offenses of no insurance or no driver’s license. An ODL is issued by the courts based on good cause. It authorizes the operation of a non-commercial motor vehicle for a person’s occupation, for educational purposes and for the performance of essential household duties. With an Occupational Driver’s License, a driver is limited to a maximum of 12 hours a day, i.e., the number of hours of actual driving time is restricted.

The procedure for obtaining an Occupational Driver’s License can be complicated. Each situation is unique, so please allow our knowledgeable attorney and well-trained staff to help you and to see if you quality for an Occupational Driver’s License or ODL.
