(also called Limited licenses, day licenses, work permits, Cinderella licenses, or "7 to 7s".)
Such a license allows you to drive:
- 7 days per week for
- an identical 12 hour period each day
- which you choose
- for work, school or
- any other "legitimate purpose".
A work license or hardship license is not available for:
- suspensions for breath or blood test refusal, or
- "under 21" suspension
- suspensions for additional charges due to the same incident
A work license or hardship license may be granted when the criminal matter has been disposed of under Section 24D (first offender provision) of the OUI law. (This is a state approved driver alcohol education program consisting of about 20 weekly classes.)
I usually achieve a "first offender's disposition" allowing for a work license if the prior OUI is more than 10 years old.
