DWI Occupational License Attorney
If you are suffering through a license suspension in Texas, you may be eligible to apply for an “Occupational License.” This is a special type of court approved driver’s license that permits you to operate a vehicle for the purposes of commuting between work, school, and home. Depending on the specific restrictions imposed by the court for the occupational license, you may also be able to drive and fulfill household responsibilities such as medical appointments, shopping, or child transportation. An occupational license does not include the operation of commercial vehicles. Also, you cannot obtain an occupational license if you were suspended due to medical inability to drive or failure to meet child support obligations.
Harris County Occupational License
In order to obtain a Houston Occupational License, you have to make a request through your nearest District or County court and you are subject to numerous requirements and restrictions. After court approval, you are required to present the court paperwork to the Department of Public Safety. You will also need proper insurance documentation and money for both the occupational license fees and other reinstatement fees. The courts do not compel applicants to have an attorney for these procedures. However, obtaining the services of a Houston Occupational License lawyer can ensure that the process is simplified for you and that your specific needs are addressed.
Occupational License Lawyer in Houston – Billy Skinner
With the assistance of a Houston Occupational License attorney, you can negotiate for broader privileges than what is normally permitted. A typical Houston Occupational License allows for most drivers to operate a vehicle for no more than 4 hours per day. We know that often, depending on your life circumstances, you cannot accomplish everything that needs to be done in a day during such a minimal period of time. In some situations, you may be able to obtain driving privileges for up to 12 hours per day. These more lenient terms most often go to drivers who have children to care for along with work and other school responsibilities. People who merely have work but no family obligations are typically granted shorter periods that they are permitted to drive.
In any type of situation, if you have a suspended license and you find yourself struggling to keep up with your duties, contact the Law Offices of Billy Skinner today to learn more about obtaining a Occupational License in Harris County or Houston.
