Ok so my license is suspended. I had to many tickets in a three year period. I know that I have paid all of them and I do not owe anyone anything. I do have my license suspended until April of 2013. The issue here is that a regular occupational license will not suffice. My job requires me to operate Commercial style trucks. I am a salesman but my sales calls have to be made while using the company trucks. I just wanted to ask if anyone knew a way to lift the suspension. I would ask an attorney, but before going to spend a bunch of money. I wanted to hopefully get some answers. Any help at all would be great. I know i can get an sr-22 etc etc but I need to lift the full suspension so i can operate commercial trucks before next month.

Petition the court. Set a court date and stop getting tickets. They won't just hand it to you.

The fact that your job requires you to be able to drive yet you continued to rack up tickets tells me you probably shouldn't have a license. If you can't drive safe when your livelihood depends on it, then what does that say?

I could not have typed this better myself. I just hope this one does not live where I drive.

How irresponsible to continue to get tickets knowing your employment depends on your ability to drive.

Thanks Ronnie I just need a step in the right direction to get it back. I dont get tickets on purpose or anything just a couple here and there but it looks to me that it added up. I didnt know it could affect my job at all. These other people on this site are Hilarious, talking like they know me. HAHA thanks though man i will get with a lawyer and see what i can do about petitioning the court.

Same goes for you. Did i say "I have a job but i go home at night and yell at cops to chase me and give me citations!!" nope sure didnt. Over a period of 3 years the tickets have added up, come on now kid read before you write.

Sorry. Can't help but jump in here. People usually don't get tickets if they're doing all the right things -- following the speed limit, making sure the inspection and registration stickers are updated, etc. In your situation where your job is dependent on having a current license, it would seem that you would want to be extra careful to protect your driving privilege by following the laws. Plus, imagine the outrage if you're involved in a wreck, your company gets sued, and then they find out their employee has been driving with a suspended driver's license! You would be fired for sure!
