Do I need a hearing to get a restricted license to go to and from work?
No. A request for a restricted license cannot be considered at the DMV hearing. You may apply for a restricted license only after your license has been suspended for the mandatory period by law. A restricted driver’s license allows to drive to and from work, during the work day under the course and scope of your employment, and to and from an alcohol school.
A restricted license is applied for at a DMV branch office, not at the Office of Driver Safety locations, which is where license hearings are held.
