DL got suspended in AL for too many point on moving violations. From what we understand AL does not have a hardship/occupational license. The person works in Texas and will need occupational license. Can that person apply for hardship or occupational license in Texas?
Probably not. Under the terms of the Driver License Compact (both Texas and Alabama are members of the Compact), a person who is suspended or revoked in one state may not receive a driver license in another state until such time the suspension or revocation - commonly referred to as a "hold"- is cleared in the first state. At any rate, "point" suspension are generally very short duration from 60 to 180 days [12-14 points will receive a 60 day suspension; 15-16 points a 90 day suspension; etc.] and the period of suspension should expire in a relatively short time.
