If my license is suspended, how will I get back and forth to work?


"Occupational Licenses" are available under many different circumstances. The judge must find that an "essential need" exists, such as school and job commuting. The license is restricted as to routes, areas, and certain times.

It can be granted only after an appropriate lawsuit is filed to obtain the license. A qualified attorney can help you with the process. Court costs in Cameron County are $178.00.  An SR-22, which costs $50, is a document sent to DPS to ensure that you are continuously insured as required by law. Your insurance and attorney are additional costs.

Some people are ineligible to receive an occupational license. Visit an attorney for details.
