LOW ATTORNEY’S FEES!!!
 
 

WHAT IS AN OCCUPATIONAL DRIVER’S LICENSE, AND HOW CAN I GET ONE?

When your license is suspended you may be eligable for a temporary license, also known as a Texas Occupational License. An Occupational Driver’s License allows you to operate a non-commercial motor vehicle:

    • to go to work and for your employment;
    • for your educational needs, such as to and from school; and,
    • and carry out essential household duties.

IN SUMMARY, in addition to having our office draft the Petition and Order, you’ll need the following to be granted an Occupational Driver’s License in Texas:

  1. SR22 Insurance (Even if you never had a DWI)
  2. Filing Fees of ~$ 255.

There’s a couple more minor requirements, mainly paperwork that we can discuss over the phone.

WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR OBTAINING AN OCCUPATIONAL LICENSE?

Once you’ve retained our office, we prepare the materials for the court to sign. While you don’t need to come to court, you do need to obtain the necessary documentation (some listed above). The Petition and Order is then filed with the Clerk’s Office. That Order is valid to drive on for 30 days, during which paperwork is forwarded to the Texas DPS Office. Within 30 days (assuming timely filing with DPS), you’ll receive your Occupational Driver’s License, valid for up to two years from the date of the Order.
