The hard part about getting an occupational license should not be complying with the orders contained therein. Unfortunately, we have helped out clients who have failed, for one reason or another, to remain in compliance with the occupational license. The occupational license statutes provide that a person who holds an occupational license commits a criminal offense if he/she operates a motor vehicle in violation of one or more of the terms contained within the occupational license order and/or he/she fails to maintain a certified copy of the court’s order with them while operating the vehicle.
A violation under the statute is punishable as a Class B Misdemeanor which carries a possible punishment of up to 6 months in county jail and/or a fine up to $2,000.00. Subsequently, the occupational license would automatically revoked. A criminal case would be brought in the county court where the occupational license was issued because that court maintains jurisdiction over the case until discharged.
Therefore, please make sure that, if you have an occupational license, you comply with all the conditions in the order and keep a copy with you in any car that you drive. The possible loss of the occupational license and the potential ramifications of a criminal case is too substantial a risk to take. However, should you need assistance with a violation, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
