After being charged with multiple DUI offenses, it is likely that you may be penalized with a license suspension. A license suspension can greatly affect your method of transportation to your job, school, and even to doctor appointments. Thankfully, a judge can assign a DUI offender with a Maryland Hardship Driver’s License.
A driving restriction is a limitation that restricts your driving privileges—which is a good alternative compared to complete a license suspension. Drivers who are completing a Maryland driver’s license suspension period may be able to obtain a restricted driving credential, which can be used for specific driving purposes—such as traveling to and from work or school.
Drivers whose physical health do not allow them to operate a vehicle with an unrestricted credential may also be able to receive a hardship license.
Applying for A Hardship License
To become eligible to reinstate driving license in Maryland, drivers must apply for a restricted driver’s license through the MD DMV. The process may be different depending on the type of restriction that was imposed. When applying for a restricted license, you may be required to complete these steps:
- Submit an application form
- Present evidentiary documentation
- Supply documents needed—such as employment verification
- Pay the application fee
