Are You In Need of a Hardship License?
Our Brockton Criminal Defense Attorneys Can Help!
An arrest for OUI can really throw a wrench in the gears and make your
life difficult, largely due to your inability to drive. In some cases,
however, it may be possible for you to obtain a hardship license to restore
some of your mobility. A hardship license, also referred to as a Cinderella
license, allows you to operate a vehicle for up to 12 hours a day in order
to get to work, school, or doctor appointments.
Acquiring a hardship license, however, can be difficult and requires you
to attend a hearing before the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV). Our Quincy
OUI lawyers at South Shore Criminal Defense can help you prepare your appeal
and offer the strong representation you need at your hearing. As former
prosecutors, we have invaluable insight that gives us the necessary tools
to create a strong defense.

Am I Eligible For a Hardship License?
There are several factors that can affect your eligibility to apply for
a hardship license. A few guidelines are listed below, though speaking
with an experienced OUI attorney can give you a clearer picture. It is
important to note that approval is always at the discretion of the RMV
on a case-by-case basis, and approval is not guaranteed.
In general, all of the following factors can negatively impact your eligibility:
- Refusing to take a breathalyzer test
- Applying before your case has been fully resolved
- Multiple OUI offenses on your record
- Evidence of attempting to operate a vehicle since the suspension
Each applicant must submit documentation of proper alcohol treatment, along
with proving that the license suspension has resulted in a significant
hardship, such as a loss of employment. Our firm can assist you as you
prepare for your RMV hearing and stands ready to aggressively defend your
rights every step of the way.
