Definition - What does Conditional License mean?
A conditional license is a type of drivers license that has certain restrictions on it, such as only allowing a driver to drive during certain hours or to and from certain events. A person can receive a conditional license after they are caught violating a driving law of some nature and end up in court. Qualifiable infractions range from excessive speeding to drunk or intoxicated driving. It is common for a judge to revoke the person's normal driving privileges for a certain period of time while still providing a way for the person to drive to the places or events that are deemed important. Such places and events include work, doctor's visits for the person and their dependents, and appointments made by the court, such as rehabilitation.
Justipedia explains Conditional License
Conditional licenses do not exist in every state, and in the states that do allow them, there are varying requirements for approval. There are often high fees placed on a conditional license, and the ability to gain one can be subjective. For instance, if a person denies a roadside drug or alcohol test, they may not qualify for a conditional license at all. The basis of this subjectivity is that the person should be in complete compliance with the law during the process.
