Driving After License Revocation

A limited driving privilege is essentially a “paper license” that allows an individual to drive for limited purposes after a license suspension. These limited purposes include getting to and from work, picking up children, and going to medical appointments.

At Bell & Bell Law Office, we help people who have been convicted of speeding, drunk driving, and driving while license revoked seek a limited driving privilege. Contact us online or call 1-888-916-BELL (2355) to schedule a free initial consultation.

Types of Limited Driving Privilege (LDP)

It is possible to seek a limited driving privilege through the DMV after conviction for:

  • Speeding — Any speeding conviction of 16 mph or more over the speed limit, or 81 mph or higher automatically results in license suspension of at least 30 days.
  • Driving while license revoked — Depending on the reason for the license revocation, it may be possible to obtain a limited driving privilege.
  • DWI / DUI — A DWI conviction almost always results in license suspension. The maximum period of suspension is two years.

DWI Pretrial License Suspension

If an individual is simply charged with DWI — not convicted — his or her license will be automatically revoked for 30 days. Before the courts find the person innocent or guilty, he or she loses driving privileges.

It is possible to seek a pretrial limited driving privilege 11 days after the initial DWI arrest. The first 10 days after the arrest there is no limited privilege license available. Our firm’s attorneys can help you seek a pretrial limited driving privilege that would allow you to drive for certain purposes until the date of your trial.
