Work-Permit / Limited License Violation

Work-Permit / Limited License Violation

In some instances, a person whose driver’s license has been revoked for either a DWI or implied consent violation may apply for a limited license to drive:

    • To and from work or to apply for a job;
    • To and from chemical dependency treatment programs;
    • To provide for medical, educational, or nutritional needs of the family; and/or
    • For attendance to a postsecondary educational institute.

Work-Permit / Limited License Violation Consequences

A person who violates a condition of a work-permit / limited license or fails to have the license in their immediate possession at all times while operating a motor vehicle is guilty of a crime. Additionally, a person found guilty of violating a condition or limitation may not operate a motor vehicle for the remainder of the revocation period, or 30 days, whichever is longer.
