Who can get a hardship license (business purposes only or Employment Purposes Only) in Tampa Bay?

Florida Statutes 322.271 (1)(c)2 refers to the hardship license or DUI restricted license as a "driving privilege restricted to business purposes only."

Once a drivers license is suspended for DUI, having a breath result over .o8, or for refusing to submit to a chemical test, there may be an opportunity to seek a hardship license. This must be initiated by a hearing at the Bureau of Administrative Reviews (BAR) Office. A hardship license is not issued automatically and the driver and their attorney must work together to get this handled. In short, once a proper request and all the supporting paperwork is submitted to the Bureau of Administrative Reviews (BAR), a Hearing Officer will review the driver's needs to obtain a hardship license. There is no guarantee, since the hearing officer, who is kind of like a Judge, may or may not grant the request. Sometimes they may rule a license is not necessary or the driver may be ineligible. The Clerk of Court and the Driver's License issuing offices generally do not advise on issues of eligibility for a hardship license. We advise you to contact your lawyer or the Bureau of Administrative Reviews (BAR) for input on eligibility.
