Occupational Driver’s License

Helping You Get Back Behind the Wheel- (346) 220-3404

There are numerous reasons why you need a driver’s license; from driving to and from work or school to carrying out household duties and taking care of children. Regardless of why your license is suspended, I want to help you continue to contribute to your household and the community. I understand that driving is an important task for most adults and I can help you apply for an Occupation Driver’s License (ODL) to use while you are waiting for your license to be reinstated.

Contact Capetillo Law Firm to discuss your charges.

Occupational Driver’s License and Your Case

To qualify for an ODL, your charges and penalties come into play. There are several different types of suspended licenses in Texas, some of which prohibit obtaining an ODL. Because of the complicated specifics of each case, it is best to discuss your charges with an experienced attorney who has your best interests at heart. An Occupational Driver’s License has limitations that I can help you to understand and compliance requirements that sometimes involve an ignition interlock device.

Unfortunately, you cannot get an ODL if:

  • You lost your driving privileges due to a mental or physical disability
  • You lost your driving privileges due to failure to pay child support
  • You have received 2 ODL’s in the past 10 years due to other convictions
  • You lost your driving privileges because the judge believes you are a danger to the public
  • You want to be able to drive a commercial vehicle
  • You have a “hard suspension” waiting period for a prior DWI conviction or arrest

For your best chance at moving forward, let me help you every step of the way. I know the Texas laws and how each different type of suspended license pertains to ODL availability.
