For Desoto residents seeking an occupational drivers license, the first step is to determine which court to file the petition to obtain the occupational license. The Texas Transportation Code makes it clear where an occupational license can be filed. The applicable statute provides as follows:


  • A person whose license has been suspended for a reason other than a mental or physical disability or impairment or under the Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) laws in Texas, can file a verified petition in the county court or district court of the county where the person resides or county where the offense occurred that caused the license suspension.
  • A person whose license has been suspended for a DWI law conviction must file in the court where the person received the conviction
Therefore, a person whose license was suspended for Driving While License Invalid (DWLI), for example, can file in the county where the person lives or in the county where the DWLI offense conviction was received. This flexibility can be advantageous when deciding which court would yield the best possible chance of obtaining an occupational license.
