Hardship Licenses

If you have had your license suspended due to a DUI conviction, you may be eligible for a hardship license. A hardship license is a restricted license that only allows you to drive during a pre-determined 12 hour period per day, so you can get to work and back.

To get a hardship license, you will have to present your case in a hearing at the Registry of Motor Vehicles. After you pay a $500 fee for the hearing, you will have to show:

  1. A letter from your employer indicating the hours you work and that you have to drive get to work
  2. Proof that you cannot take public transportation or walk to work
  3. Documentation showing that you are enrolled in an alcohol education program

Within about a week or so of your hearing, you will get a decision on whether you will receive a hardship license.
