If you have had your license suspended you understand the hardships and frustrations that this can cause. In this day and age, almost everyone relies on an automobile and having the ability to drive to maintain employment and to meet their everyday needs. Over the past few years the State of Indiana has passed legislation to make Specialized Driving Privileges available to more individuals who are facing current license suspensions. These Specialized Driving Privileges make it possible for an individual to legally get back behind the wheel of a car.
Who is Eligible?
The Specialized Driving Privileges are codified in Indiana Code § 9-30-16 et. al. This statute provides a list of those who are ineligible to receive specialized driving privileges. Below is a short list of individuals who are commonly found as ineligible. The most common disqualifiers include:
- A person who has never been an Indiana resident
- A person who has a suspension based on the person’s refusal to submit to a chemical test offered under Ind. Code § 9-30-6 and 9-30-7.
- A person who holds a CDL, Commercial Driver’s License.
