Get Back On The Road With An Occupational Limited License

Last updated on February 3, 2021

There are numerous reasons a Pennsylvania driver may temporarily lose their license. And while the state reserves the right to suspend licenses punitively, it also recognizes that doing so can impose undue hardship in certain circumstances.

If your license has been suspended but you still need to drive for work, school or medical treatment, you may be eligible to apply for an Occupational Limited License OLL. This is a noncommercial driver’s license tied to a specific vehicle being used for specific purposes.

Are You Eligible For An OLL?

The conditions for obtaining an OLL are quite detailed. But generally speaking, you only qualify if your license has been suspended (as opposed to revoked/canceled/disqualified). You can generally apply if your suspension was due to motor vehicle violations, you have resolved those violations, and your restoration requirements have been met.

You do not qualify for an OLL if your license was suspended due to drunk/drugged driving or refusing a chemical test. In such cases, you may be able apply for an Ignition Interlock Limited License, which requires the installation of specialized equipment in your vehicle.
