Every state has its own laws regarding hardship licenses, which are special licenses that are available for individuals who have had their licenses revoked for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Also known as a Cinderella or work license, a hardship license will permit you to lawfully operate a motor vehicle for the same 12-hour period each day. This time period will be determined based on your needs, and you may be arrested and given a citation if you are found driving a vehicle outside of the hours specified. One thing that you must keep in mind is that no one is guaranteed a hardship license, and the Registry of Motor Vehicles and the Board of Appeals are given discretion to decide who qualifies. There are approximately 3,500 hardship licenses granted every year, and taking the time to prepare your case before you present it to the Registry or Board of Appeals can greatly increase your chances. A DUI attorney can help you identify the factors that you must prove to qualify, so I recommend calling an attorney before you begin the process.
