Can I get a limited license or work permit following a Florida drunk driving conviction?

If this is your first DUI conviction and you have successfully completed the DUI school, you’d be eligible to ask the Department of Highway Safety Motor Vehicles for some type of temporary or work permit. In other words, a license that would enable you to go to work, go to church, go to the doctor. You know the basic necessities of life. If this is not your first DUI conviction, in other words, it’s the second or the third or some subsequent conviction, then it may depend. I mean there’s not hard and fast rule. It depends when the prior conviction occurred. What you need to understand is that the conviction and your eligibility for the Department of Highway Safety Motor Vehicles to give you a license are two separate things, and the courts have no authority to tell Department of Highway Safety Motor Vehicles whether or not they should give you a license.
