Judicial Driving Permit - What Are my Options After a Rescission Hearing?
If the DUI / DWI rescission hearing is lost, there are still options available. Applying for a Judicial Driving Permit is a viable option that may allow an individual to maintain some driving privileges.
A Judicial Driving Permit allows an individual to drive to and from work, school, alcohol treatment and other locations approved by the court. To be eligible for this permit, a license has to be suspended for 30 days. This permit can also be used during a license suspension.
