As part of my Florida felony probation, I am only permitted to have a hardship license. I have had it for about 6 months and have had no incidents in that time. A work opportunity has come up that requires me to have my license cleared. How can I have my license cleared so I will no longer need a hardship, or work/school only?
A local judge puts it well when he sentences people. He says, he has a lot of power to take someone's license, but no power in getting one back. While that may be a bit of an exaggeration, it is probably true in your case. In other words, it's only up to the DMV to decide if you can get your full license. However, the DMV never deviates from their rules. Would need more information to find out if you are even eligible.
We will need to know what authority the court had to order a "hardship license" at all. Those types of licenses are authorized to be issued by DHSMV under certain circumstances and i am not certain that the trial judge has legal authority to impose that.
The court may have issued a license suspension as part of your probation sentence, with the result being you can get a hardship license form DHSMV.
We need more facts.
