An occupational driver’s license (or “ODL”) can be obtained through the Texas Department of Public Safety. An ODL is a special restricted license that you can obtain if your license has been suspended or revoked for certain criminal offenses.
An ODL authorizes you to operate a non-commercial motor vehicle in connection with your job, your school, or in the performance of essential household duties (i.e. grocery shopping, taking children to doctor’s appointments). You may drive for up to 12 hours per day so long as you obtain SR-22 drivers insurance and the Judge has reviewed and approved your hours ahead of time. Our attorneys are knowledgeable in this process and can help walk you through the steps necessary to obtain an ODL and get you back on the road legally, so that you may go about your regular course of business, for relatively minimal cost.
If you are unable to pay the costs associated with an ODL, we can also assist you in requesting a reduction of fees based on your proven income, or work out a payment plan to assist you in paying these costs. If your license has been suspended or revoked due to a criminal arrest, please contact the Segura Law Firm via our contact form or call 512.472.1580 to schedule a free initial consultation, and find out more about how we can help you obtain an ODL.
