Getting to work when your license is suspended can be troublesome if you have no way to reach the location other than driving!
You can get a hardship license in Oklahoma (also known as a modified driver license) for implied consent revocations, which seems to be your case. This modification would be issued by the Department of Public Safety (DPS).
To apply for a modified license, you will need to consult with a driver compliance hearing officer to proceed.
Below are some requirements you will need to meet to be eligible:
- Request for modification must be for driving a Class D motor vehicle
- An ignition interlock device approved by the Board of Tests for Alcohol and Drug Influence must be installed at your own expense
- The device must be installed on all vehicles you will be driving, including employer vehicles
- You must pay a statutory modification fee of $175
- You must pay $25 to obtain a replacement plastic license with Modified printed on it
However, if your driving record is a concern for public safety, DPS may further limit your driving times, locations, purposes for driving, and more. In addition, you will not be eligible for a modification if your suspension involved causing bodily harm or death or violating an existing modification.
