How to Lose Your Occupational License
The privilege of driving in Texas is necessary. Texas is just too big to live meaningfully if you cannot get out and enjoy the state’s splendor. However, unlike New York City, Texas requires that a person drive in order to truly make the best of his/her life here. When a person fails to maintain their drivers license in good standing with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), then the state has the right to take away those privileges. Fortunately, if a license is suspended, cancelled, or revoked, the laws provide that the affected person can obtain an occupational license. Of course an occupational license is a special restricted license and should be considered a privilege as well that can be taken away if a person violates the terms of the license.
If you are issued an occupational license, a judge may cancel it or it may be automatically cancelled if you violate any of the following (non-exclusive list):
- Drive outside the hours listed in the occupational license order
- Drive outside the areas or routes of travel designated in the order
- Fail to carry the occupational license with you in any vehicle you operate
- Fail to cooperate with a police officer when he/she is requests to inspect the order
- Fail to maintain current and valid SR-22 insurance
- Drive for purposes other than work, school, or for essential household duties
- Receive a new violation which would suspend your license
- For any just cause
