10. When can I get an occupational license?

The process for obtaining an occupational license will take a few days. Obtaining the occupational license from DPS will take about 30 days after you have the court order authorizing the occupational license. As mentioned above, the order, which you must have with your, will be your driving permit during that time.

However, if you have had any alcohol or drug related contacts with law enforcement in the last five years, you will have to wait until the 91st day after the date of suspension for an occupational license to be effective. If your license has been suspended for a DWI in the last five years, you will have to wait until the 181st day after the date of suspension. If the suspension is the result of a second conviction within the last five years, you will have to wait one year before an occupational license can be effective.
