The DMV offers a hardship permit (or hardship license) which can allow holders to operate vehicles for a limited time while they are in the process of obtaining car insurance or being reinstated. If the judge has recommended that you obtain a hardship license, please fill out the following application and submit directly to the DMV along with their requested payment. The charge is a maximum of $125.
NOTE: Municipal Court clerks cannot help you fill out this application; in addition, completing and submitting the application does not guarantee that the DMV will grant you a hardship license. The DMV will determine if your circumstances qualify for a hardship license and will notify you based on their conclusion.
