The Registry of Motor Vehicles will deny your application for a hardship license if you do not have the required documents or they are too old. Registry Hearing Officers scrutinize this paperwork and some look for reasons to say no. It is therefore, imperative, that you have all the necessary paperwork and that is completed properly. If the Registry rejects your paperwork, you should ask for a follow-up hearings, so that you will have an opportunity to return and satisfy the Registry’s paperwork requirements. If the Registry denies you a hardship license, you should contact a lawyer to discuss going before the Board of Appeal.
It is important to remember that your work letter must explain why you need a license and why public transportation will not help you. This letter cannot be more than 30 days old. If you have 2 or more DUI convictions, you must present a letter from your probation officer which confirms that you have not violated your terms and conditions of probation.
Upon completion of the DUIL program, you will be given a completion letter and discharge summary. You must submit these documents along with your discharge summary from the aftercare component of the 2nd offender program. If this document does not state that you have a low risk of recidivism, the RMV will likely deny your hardship license application and refer you to the Division of Insurance, Board of Appeal.
