Protecting Your Rights. Fighting for Your Freedom.

Restricted Driver’s Licenses Attorneys in Tacoma

Knowledgeable Representation to Fight for Your Rights

If your license was recently suspended or revoked, there are two initial questions that need to be addressed. First, was the suspension justified? If you believe your license was revoked without reasonable cause or that it was too harsh a penalty, you may be able to fight it. You will want to speak with a revoked license attorney to discuss your case.

Second, if your suspension was justified, do you know how to go about trying to get a restricted license? Washington State provides for two types of restricted driver’s licenses: Occupational/Restricted Driver Licenses (ORLs) and Ignition Interlock Driver Licenses (IILs). There are specific eligibility requirements and procedures for obtaining one.

Common Causes for Suspended Licenses

If your license was revoked, you’re far from alone. In fact, given the long list of offenses that are punishable by license suspension, having your license revoked relatively commonplace.

Some situations that can lead to a suspension include:

  • Having your insurance canceled
  • Not paying child support
  • Violating probation
  • Getting a DUI
  • Driving while a license is revoked
  • Failing to pay traffic tickets or having too many tickets
  • Committing a felony involving a motor vehicle (vehicular assault, vehicular homicide, vehicular manslaughter, etc.)
  • Committing fraud
  • Failing a physical/vision exam
  • Driving recklessly
  • Having a child in the car without using a proper car seat
  • Violating a driver’s license restriction

ORLs: Restrictions & Eligibility

If you have a Washington State driver’s license and live in the state, you may be eligible for an Occupational/Restricted Driver License. An ORL can be used only to drive to certain locations such as work, school, community service, substance abuse treatments and your own health care appointments.

IILs: Requirements & Costs

Ignition Interlock Driver Licenses are a type of restricted license only for those whose licenses were revoked for a drug- or alcohol-related offense. This type of license requires that you install an ignition interlock device (IID) on your vehicle. An IID is an instrument that tests your breath alcohol content (BAC) and determines whether or not the vehicle will start. In order for your car to start, you’ll need to blow into the device and have a BAC reading of less than 0.025.
