SR-22 insurance Requirement For Occupational Driver License
SR-22 insurance is nothing more than a regular insurance policy that labeled as a “high risk” policy. This basically means that the coverage is usually more expensive to obtain to adjust for the risk of providing the policy to the driver. In Texas an occupational driver license cannot be obtained without first providing the court that is responsible for granting the request proof of this type of policy. Your first step to obtain an occupational driver license in Texas is going to be to start getting insurance quotes for an SR-22 insurance policy. We tell clients to simply get the cheapest policy you can find, because they are all the same on paper. Once you obtain the policy, you can then begin to draft the documents necessary to request the occupational driver license.
Determine The Reason For The Driver License Suspension
It is important to determine the reason for your driver license suspension in advance. There are two ways to do this. First, you can do a driver license eligibility check on your license to determine the suspension reason. This ensures that you actually need an occupational driver license. Many times, our occupational driver license lawyers consult with clients who find that they do not actually need an occupational driver license. If the driver license eligibility page states another way to fix the suspension action, then we normally suggest the alternative route. The second way to determine the suspension reason is to pull an official driving record from The Texas Department Of Public Safety. The good thing about this method is that most courts require an official driving record from DPS anyway before they will grant an occupational driver license. In our firm, we do both. And we attach both as proof to the petition requesting an occupational driver license.
Hire An Occupational Driver License Attorney
These are two of the most important steps you will need to take in order to prepare an occupational driver license petition. Thereafter, we suggest you consult with an attorney in your area to develop the petition and establish the essential need requirement for an occupational driver license to be granted.
