Applying for Criminal/Traffic Driving Privileges

In a criminal or traffic case, the Court must have granted you privileges at the time of sentencing for you to be eligible to apply for privileges.

  1. Carefully read and complete the “Petition for Driving Privileges” application. The application can be obtained from the Court.
  2. Present:
    • Proof of current insurance (document must contain your name as an insured motorist, and dates of coverage – if the policy is not in your name, you must present the portion of the policy that indicates that you are an insured motorist under that policy). You may not receive privileges beyond the expiration date on your proof of insurance.
    • Proof of current employment (most recent pay stub). For self-employed individuals, you must present current tax forms and proof of quarterly tax payments. For students, a current school schedule is required.
    • Proof of restricted plates being obtained and installation of an ignition interlock device must also be present if the Judge/Magistrate has placed that condition for driving privileges upon you.
    • If your employment requires you to drive during work hours, documentation must be provided to verify the need for privileges and a sample form must be provided to the court for inclusion with the driving letter. Privileges during work hours will only be granted if the sample form includes the start and destination addresses, date and time of each trip. Documentation must be on company letterhead and have a supervisor’s contact number.
  3. If you have been sentenced by the Judge/Magistrate, all fines and costs must be paid in full before driving privileges will be considered.
  4.  If you have previously received privileges, the driving privilege document must be returned before new privileges will be issued.

You must apply for privileges in person during the following days/times:
MONDAY – THURSDAY: 2:30PM – 4:00PM
APPLICATIONS WILL ONLY BE REVIEWED DURING THESE HOURS.

You will be served on a first come basis as Court business allows.

APPLICATION FEE OF $25 MUST BE PAID AT TIME OF REQUEST.
