We can help you obtain an Occupational Driver's License in as little as 2 - 6 weeks in most cases.

An Occupational Driver's License (also called an Essential Need License) is a special type of restricted license to drive issued to individuals whose driver's license has been suspended, revoked or denied because of certain offenses - other than a medical reason or delinquent child support.

Texas law states that a person, "may not operate a motor vehicle on a highway in this state unless the person holds a driver's license" (TTC §521.021) - which means you must have a valid driver's license to operate a motor vehicle anywhere in Texas.

If you're operating a motor vehicle in Texas without a valid Driver's License, or while your license to drive is suspended, invalid, revoked, canceled or after renewal of your driver's license has been denied under any Texas statute - the Police Officer CAN IMMEDIATELY ARREST YOU!

You may have the right to obtain an Occupational Driver's License so you're still legally permitted to operate a motor vehicle in Texas - we can help!

If convicted of Driving While License is Invalid (DWLI), you could face maximum fines of up to $4,000 plus court costs, confinement in jail for a term not to exceed one year, or BOTH such fine and confinement, AND an additional 1-year suspension of your Driver’s License plus REINSTATEMENT FEES!

A valid Occupational Driver's License will protect you against these serious consequences.
