What You Can Do with an Occupational License

While it may seem obvious that you can apply for an occupational license to drive yourself to and from work, other driving-related tasks are also allowed with these licenses.

With an occupational license you can:

  • Go to and from work
  • Take to and pick your children up from school
  • Take to and pick your children up from parental visitation
  • Pick up prescriptions and groceries
  • Provide aid to an elderly or disabled dependent
  • Other necessary household duties

With an occupational driver’s license, your life doesn’t have to stop after a general driving licenses suspension, and it is a vital component to moving forward with your life in a positive manner. Additionally, obtaining an occupational license can prevent you from being charged with driving on a suspended license (also referred to as driving while license invalid or DWLI). This can be costly and further impact your driving privileges.
