Driver’s License Suspension
Some states allow individuals whose driver’s license has been suspended as a result of DUI to apply for a temporary hardship license. A hardship license allows for the defendant to drive to and from certain preapproved locations, including work, school, doctor appointments, substance abuse programs, and necessary errands such as groceries or child care.
Unfortunately, Rhode Island does not offer these types of hardship licenses to those who have had their license suspended or revoked, making it extremely important to contact an experienced Rhode Island suspended driver’s license lawyer. Imagine trying to live your daily life without being able to drive for six months, a year, or even longer. This restriction makes it nearly impossible for some individuals to get their lives back on track, and comes at a time when they are already vulnerable.
Thirty days following the suspension of your driver’s license, a hearing will typically be held at which you can appeal the suspension. It is this hearing that will ultimately determine the fate of your driver’s license and as such is extremely important. Having a Rhode Island suspended driver’s license attorney on your side can make the difference between having a license for the next six months and having to walk, ride a bike, or take a cab.
