Specialized Driving Privileges

Beginning January 1, 2015, Indiana has changed hardship licenses to fall under I.C. 9-30-16 “Specialized Driving Privileges.” These privileges are in place in order to allow for individuals with suspended licenses to be granted a license that may allow them to drive to and from work. Depending on the circumstances, judges may grant the right to travel to other destinations.  

Our attorneys can represent you in order to help determine if you qualify for “Specialized Driving Privileges”.
