Licenses for Working & Driving
Learn about your issue
If your license is suspended in Louisiana, you might still be able to drive for special reasons. After 30 days of suspension for a first offense, you may be eligible for a hardship license. To obtain it, you must show that you need to drive in order to “maintain the necessities of life.” Examples include driving to and from work, medical care, school or the grocery store. Drivers under this restriction are only permitted to be on certain designated streets, and may be on the road only during hours when working, attending school or receiving medical treatment. If you’re stopped while driving under a hardship license, it’s up to the officer’s discretion to determine that you were in fact driving for an authorized purpose.
This resources outlines how you can get your driver's license reinstated after being released from prison.
