A “work” licence

I frequently deal with people who have been disqualified from driving and need a limited licence – these are often called work licences as many people use them for work purposes.   I see a lot of applications from those working in the building trades as they often need to transport tools and cannot work without a vehicle.   However, such a licence is not limited to work.   The test is whether not having a licence will cause you extreme hardship or another person undue hardship.   Mainly, the focus on an application will be on the hardship the driver will suffer but I have made applications on many different scenarios – For example, taking a family member regularly to hospital appointments or taking them to educational activities or school.   Take advice if you are struggling due to lack of a driver’s licence if suspended.
