Have Occupational License Questions? Call Us Now.

We have received many questions about the outer limits of an occupational license.  One of the most common questions is whether or not a person can obtain more than one occupational license.  If a person can obtain more than one occupational license, then how many is the limit?  This article is intended to answer that question and outline the law that applies to issue.  If you should need further advice regarding an occupational license in Texas, feel free to contact our office at your earliest convenience.

 

The controlling law for occupational license requests is contained in the Texas Transportation Code under the driver’s license section.  that section can be found in The Texas Transportation Code Section 521.242.  The relevant part of the statute is part (b)(2), wherein the statute reads:

  • “the person has not been issued, in the 10 years preceding the date of the filing of the petition, more than one occupational license after a conviction under the laws of this state.”

So if your question was, “Can I get more than 1 occupational license in Texas?”  The obvious answer is yes.  Of course, there is a limit under the statute.  That limit states that you can only get 2 per 10 year period.

Occupational licenses are good for a 2 year period.  So if a person were to get 2 occupational licenses back to back, they could potentially be covered for 4 years.  Thereafter, they would have to wait an additional 6 years before re-applying for another occupational license.
