For some suspensions of driving privileges you may be able to get a hardship permit that allows for driving privileges to:
- Go to and from work;
- Drive on the job;
- Seek employment;
- Take part in an alcohol or drug rehabilitation program; or
- Get medical treatment required on a regular basis.
The hardship permit allows for driving privileges only in a Non-Commercial motor vehicle. We do not have the authority to issue driving privileges for the purposes of driving a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV). If you hold a Commercial Driver License (CDL), you may be eligible for a hardship permit, however you would be required to downgrade from a CDL to a non-commercial Class C driver license.
If your driving privileges have been suspended for an uninsured accident or minor in possession and no other reason, you may get a hardship permit to drive for basic family needs, such as taking children to and from school or daycare, getting medical treatment and buying groceries.
