Are You Eligible for Limited Driving Privilege (LDP) in Missouri?
If your license has been suspended, revoked, or denied, you might be eligible for a Limited Driving Privilege (LDP). This provides you with permission to drive to certain places during certain times when your license is otherwise not valid.
Our firm can file the petition for you in either your county of residence or your county of employment. We are here to help you get driving legally again as quickly as possible.
You may not be eligible if:
- You were convicted of a felony that involved a motor vehicle within the last five years.
- You lost commercial driving privileges either through a suspension, revocation, cancellation, or disqualification. If this is the case, a non-commercial LDP might be issued.
- You failed to pass a driving or medical exam under the Director of Revenue’s requirements and thus had your license revoked.
- Your license has been suspended for an unsatisfied motor vehicle accident judgment, which means you owe for damages for an accident and have a suspended license until your payment has been made and you have complied with the judgment.
- You have failed to pay a ticket in Missouri or another state, thus leading to your license suspension. This suspension is in place until payment has been made and you have complied with the ticket’s requirements.
- You do not live, work, or attend school in Missouri.
Restricted Driving Privilege (RDP) in Missouri
For those who are ineligible for LDP, a Restricted Driving Privilege (RDP) may be issued to get you back on the road legally. For drivers who have not had any prior alcohol convictions, you will likely face a 30-day suspension. After this, you may be eligible for a 60-day Restricted Driving Permit (RDP). If you install an Ignition Interlock Device on your vehicle, an RDP may allow you to drive during the first 30 days as well (thus resulting in no time where you are without driving privileges). If you already have one or more alcohol convictions, you will lose your license for one year (or more) and will not be eligible for an RDP.
Missouri 5- & 10-Year License Reinstatement
If your driver's license was denied for a period of five or ten years, you will need a court order to get your license back. We can file a petition to get your license back in the county in which you received your last DWI conviction. You will need to get what is called a “Criminal History Check,” which will then be filed with the Court. Then there will be a hearing where a judge will decide whether you still “pose a threat” by driving.
As your advocate, we will:
- File your petition
- Help you obtain your criminal history check
- Prepare you for the court hearing
- Give you the best opportunity to get your license back
The sooner you get started, the better. You don’t want to be eligible for reinstatement but have to wait to drive or have your LDP expire because your case is still working its way through the court system.
