Driver’s license law changes
As of a week and a half ago, the state has introduced
changes that may allow individuals to drive under certain circumstances when
their license is suspended.
A new type of license, called an occupational/restricted
license, replaces the occupational driver's license that allowed an individual
to drive to and from work while serving the terms of a driver's license
suspension or revocation.
The new law makes more drivers eligible to drive while their
license is suspended. The occupational/restricted licenses will be issued for
the following uses:
• to drive to and from an individual's place of employment;
• for an occupation or trade that makes it essential to
operation a motor vehicle;
• to undergo continuing health care;
• to attend an educational institution or course of study
that leads to a diploma, degree or other certification;
• to undergo substance abuse treatment or for participation
in 12-step group meetings;
• for an apprenticeship, Work First, on-the-job training or
welfare to work program; and
• to provide continuing care for another who is dependent
upon the applicant.
The new law also increases the fee for obtaining this type
of restricted driving privilege, from $25 to $100.
