Conditional Hardship License Giving You a Fighting Chance

Rhode Island Conditional Hardship License

Call 401.312.4385 for Experienced & Skilled Legal Assistance

At The Law Office of Thomas C. Thomasian, Esq., one of the questions our Rhode Island DUI attorney gets on a frequent basis is that if it is possible to obtain conditional driving privileges after being charged with a DUI or refusal to submit to a chemical BAC test.

In 2015, the new Ignition Interlock law was enacted, providing limited driving privileges to those convicted of a DUI or a chemical test refusal. If you are interested in obtaining a conditional hardship license, hire the experienced legal services of Tom and his firm.

Eligibility Requirements for a Conditional Hardship License in Rhode Island

The state Ignition Interlock Law provides strict requirements to obtain a conditional hardship license, with only a sentencing judge or magistrate given the ability to grant a person with the license during the period of license suspension. The license itself is only valid for 12 hours a day in order to get to and from employment, medical appointments, or school and can only be granted in conjunction with ignition interlock device installation in your vehicle. In addition, the limited privileges are established by a sentencing judge or magistrate after a hearing in which the person must provide proof that a hardship exists.

If the court grants a conditional license, you must visit the Rhode Island DMV and bring the following documents:

  • Proof of ignition interlock device installation
  • Proof of an SR-22 insurance policy in your driver’s license (pink copy)
  • Court order that details the requirements of the conditional hardship license, such as authorized hours of operation
  • $100 to pay the ignition interlock fee
  • $6.50 to pay to update your license to add the conditional hardship restriction
  • Payment of reinstatement fees ($351.50 License / $251.50 Registration)
