Driver's License Reinstatement

Indiana law implements harsh penalties for certain traffic violations. If you have been convicted or operation a vehicle under the influence, have committed a certain amount of traffic violations within the last decade, or have failed to pay traffic tickets, you may be at risk of having your license revoked or suspended.

While a suspension can result in your license being invalid for a period of time, a revocation can mean that your license has been permanently canceled. You may need an attorney to fight for you to ensure that your driving privileges are not permanently taken away. Aaron handles all types of license cases and will fight for you every step of the way.

Specialized Driving Privileges

Indiana courts have the power to suspend your driver’s license for wide variety of reasons. In fact, state law may require suspension under certain circumstances. Fortunately, the state of Indiana allows for what are called “specialized driving privileges” (SDP). You can petition the court for specialized driving privileges to allow you to drive, even while your license is suspended.

While SDP are not guaranteed in Indiana, courts do review SDP requests on a case-by-case basis. You may need an attorney to navigate this complex process to ensure your driving privileges are not completely taken away. Anderson Driver’s License Attorney, Aaron specializes in securing SDP for his clients and will work hard to secure it for you.

How do Specialized Driving Privileges Work in Indiana?

You may be eligible for SDP if you held an Indiana operator or public passenger/chauffeur’s license at the time of your initial violation or offense that lead to your license being suspended.

You are not eligible for SDP if you have never before obtained a valid Indiana driver’s license, have been convicted for a driving offense that resulted in a someone’s death, or if you have more than one conviction as a result of violating previous SDP conditions.

How Long do Specialized Driving Privileges Last?

SDP generally lasts for a minimum of 180 days. That said, you still may be able to ask the court for a longer SDP period, depending on the circumstances. Importantly, even If your suspension happens to expire during your SDP period, you will be required to obey the SDP requirements until the SDP period expires. You may need an attorney to help you navigate Indiana’s SDP laws to ensure that you are complying with all of the requirements.

What do Specialized Driving Privileges Require?

While courts grant SDP on a case-by-case basis, common SDP requirements include: restricting vehicle use to a specific location and between certain hours, requiring you to follow all traffic laws, and/or requiring you to use an ignition interlock device that prevents your vehicle from being stated by anyone under the influence of alcohol.

What are the Consequences of Violating My SDP Requirements?

If you are found to knowingly or intentionally violate any condition of your SDP, you may face a Class C misdemeanor. If you found to have violated the conditions of your SDP, the court may modify or revoke your SDP and may order the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) to re-suspend your driver’s license.
