DUI Convictions: Work And School Permits
The suspension of your driver’s license can have an enormous impact on your life. It can be difficult to get to work or to school without being able to drive.

With more than 50 years of experience, our lawyers can help you secure a permit so you get to classes or your job.
We can help you protect your career and your education after a license suspension. Call our offices in Bridgeport at 203-371-1000 to speak with a lawyer about work and school driver’s permits.
Am I Eligible For A Special Operator Permit?
Most drivers are eligible to apply for a Special Operator Permit. However, there are limited circumstances where a driver would not be eligible for a permit. This includes situations where the driver has:
- A prior conviction for an alcohol-related driving offense, vehicular manslaughter, vehicular assault, reckless driving or evading responsibility
- A current suspension for failure to appear, failure to pay a citation or for operating while his or her license was suspended
- Three or more moving violations
- A commercial driver’s license (CDL)
Ignition Interlock Devices
The DMV may require the placement of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle prior to granting your request for a work- or school-related driver’s permit. This device will be placed on your car at your own expense.
