What is a Limited Driving Privilege?
Depending on your criminal history and your blood alcohol level at the time of the offense, you may qualify for a limited driving privilege. This would allow you to drive during the period of time that your license is suspended following a conviction. There are three types of privileges that are issued: (1) a General Limited Driving Privilege, (2) a Refusal Privilege (for people who refused a breathalyzer), and (3) an Interlock Privilege, which is for people who blew a .15 or more on a breathalyzer.
If you are eligible for a Limited Driving Privilege, you must have:
- A DL-123 form from your insurance agent. This form has a shelf life of 30 days and must be completed within 30 days of your court date (or the date you are seeking a limited driving privilege).
- $100 in cash, or money order made out to the Guilford County Clerk of Court.
- A letter from school or an employer, on letterhead, stating the hours that you are in school or work.
