Hardship Licenses in Missouri after a DWI
If your license has been revoked for convictions or a chemical test refusal, you may be eligible for "Limited Driving Privileges", commonly known as a Hardship License. You may apply for a Hardship License to either the circuit court of your county of residence or the Director of Revenue.
A Hardship License may not be granted for the following reasons, including the fact that you have been convicted of a felony involving the use of a vehicle, the failure to pay child support, or a suspension in another state. There are also many requirements concerning when a person may apply for the Hardship License. For instance, a person convicted of two DWIs within 5 years may not apply for a Hardship License until he or she has served at least 2 of the 5 years of revocation. You should consult with an attorney concerning whether you are eligible for a Hardship License.
