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 & Plymouth 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.
