In many circumstances, losing one’s privilege to drive is one of the most frightening aspects of a DUI. An individual can often become very frustrated with the legal system as they are trying to move along with their life but are not able to drive themselves to work. A conviction for DUI can cause great disturbance in your life and prevent you from going about your regular duties in an easy manner.
Immediately after a DUI conviction or after refusal to submit to a blood alcohol content test, your license will be suspended and you will be unable to drive legally. The Department of Public Safety (DPS) of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency issues suspended licenses that prevent you from getting behind the wheel. Driving on a suspended license is against the law and it would lead to even further penalties. Until you are able to get your license reinstated, you might be reasonably nervous of how you can get to the places you need.
You do have options to get to and from work, however. We hope that this blog will serve to give you a sense of peace knowing that you will be able to be mobile after your conviction.
In some cases, the best option is to apply for an Alabama hardship drivers’ license. This would grant you limited ability to drive. You can contact your local Alabama DMV office to see whether this is a viable option in your case and what the process entails.
There are some vehicles that will allow you to get to work in a timely fashion legally. Electric bikes are just one transportation solution after DUI. Riding a regular bike is still a solution, but in many cases, you show up to your destination tired and sweaty. Electric bikes allow the rider to travel for miles without breaking a sweat.
