    Limited Driving Privileges

    A limited driving privileges court order modifies a suspension to allow an individual to drive. The court specifies purposes, times, and places and may impose other conditions.

    Limited driving privileges may be granted for:

    • Occupational, educational or medical purposes
    • Taking a driver license or commercial driver license examination
    • Attending court-ordered treatment

    The order must be a journal entry from the court bearing a court seal, and you must have a modifying order including each suspension you are serving.

    In order to use limited driving privileges, your license cannot be expired and you must be in compliance with any other suspension requirements.

    Expired License

    • If your license expires while you are under suspension, the court must issue an order allowing you to renew your license while under suspension.
    • If your license is expired past six months, the court must issue an order allowing you to retest to obtain a license.
    • If you are retesting for a commercial driver license (CDL), the letter must specifically state that. However, you may not drive a commercial vehicle with limited driving privileges.

    Temporary Identification Cards

    A temporary ID card can only be issued if you are under suspension and your license is not expired. It can be used with driving privileges. A temporary ID card cannot be issued if there is a warrant block on your record.

    Remedial Driving Course for Two-Point Credit

    If you have at least two points but fewer than 12 points on your driving record, you may be eligible to complete a remedial driver course for a two-point credit.

    Completing the course does not remove points from your record, but can act as a cushion against future convictions that may take you to 12 points within a two-year period.

    This course must be taken at an approved remedial driving school.
