Can I get my license reinstated through a "hardship system?"

I got a DUI and my license was suspended, but I have to drive to work. Can I get my license reinstated through a hardship system?

That’s a tough situation to be in, but you may have some options.
Some states have hardship or restricted license programs that allow you to have a limited license while your license is suspended. Typically, these programs only allow you to drive in necessary situations—like to work or medical appointments—when there are no other options, like public transportation or other drivers in the family.
The stipulations of these programs vary by state, so you’ll need to check the law to see what you’re allowed to do. Some states even restrict the routes you’re allowed to take.
Though your driving will be restricted, you’ll still need car insurance. Many providers won’t work with people who have a DUI because they are considered high-risk. That said, Jerry can help you find a provider with a policy for you.
