What Is an Occupational License?

An occupational license is a special kind of license with certain restrictions that is given to qualifying individuals whose primary license has been suspended due to DWI. An occupational license allows you to operate a vehicle (only non-commercial vehicles) for work, education, or household duties.

You can request an occupational license from the county of your residence or from the court of original jurisdiction where the incident occurred. If you are completing a drug court program, you do not need to submit a request – the judge can grant you an occupational license.

How to Obtain an Occupational License

If you are seeking an occupational license, you must send your request to the Texas Department of Public Safety. Our Austin DWI attorney can help you with this process.

You will need:

  • A certified copy of your petition
  • A certified copy of the court order that grants you an occupational license
  • An original Form SR-22 certificate of insurance
  • An occupational license fee
  • All necessary reinstatement fees

Restricted Interlock License Information

A restricted interlock license allows you to operate a vehicle that has been equipped with an ignition interlock device. An ignition interlock device is a breath alcohol analyzer that is added to a car’s ignition. The car will not turn on until you blow a breath sample. If your blood alcohol concentration exceeds the limit set on the device, the car’s engine will not start.

By applying and paying the required fee, you may receive a special restricted license that allows you to drive a car that has an ignition interlock device installed.

Attorney Jason Trumpler and his associates have a thorough understanding of the laws governing occupational licenses. We are prepared to help you navigate the process efficiently.
