Hardship License

County Records Indicate That You Were Arrested For DUI 

If you want to keep driving while your case is pending, you must get a “Hardship License”

A “Hardship license” does not restore your full driving privileges. Instead, it permits you to drive with restrictions during the period of revocation or suspension.

If this is your first arrest for DUI, you may be able to enroll in a DUI program, take your enrollment receipt and citation to the Bureau of Administrative Review, pay their $25 filing fee and your $205 reinstatement fees, waive your right to have a hearing officer review your citation, and get a restricted purposes license without any additional waiting period or review. Otherwise, you could have to wait 30 days to apply. If this is your second or subsequent DUI, or you refused to test, please contact the BAR directly. Once you have enrolled, you will have 90 days to complete your evaluation and class. If you take longer than 90 days, you may have to re-enroll and pay fees a second time.

WITHIN 10 DAYS OF YOUR ARREST, YOU MUST DO THE FOLLOWING IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN:

  • YOUR DRIVING PRIVILEGES WITHOUT INTERRUPTION
  • YOU MUST COMPLETE REGISTRATION  IN OUR DUI PROGRAM
  • YOU THEN WILL BE ISSUED A RECEIPT FOR YOUR REGISTRATION AND THIS RECEIPT MUST BE
  • PRESENTED IN PERSON TO THE DMV WITH THE ORIGINAL CITATION ISSUED BY THE ARRESTING LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY
  • PAY THE MANDATORY REGULATED FEES DICTATED BY ALL GOVERNING AGENCIES

SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETING THESE REQUIREMENTS WILL ENABLE YOU TO HAVE YOUR DRIVING PRIVILEGES EXTENDED WITHOUT INTERRUPTION WHILE YOU CASE IS PROCESSED.
