Specialized Driving Privileges

You can get your driving privileges back – We’ll help

In Indiana, a Specialized Driving Privilege (formerly a Hardship License) allows individuals with a suspended driver’s license to receive special court approval to drive in specific situations. You may qualify for an SDP if you have one or more of the following on your record: habitual traffic violator (HTV), DUI, OWI, OVWI suspensions, insurance suspensions, court ordered suspensions, BMV suspensions, or unpaid traffic tickets.

Indiana’s Specialized Driving Privileges law grants Indiana courts the ability to grant a stay of license suspension, or specialized driving privileges to any individual that has had their license suspended. This applies to both court-ordered suspensions as well as suspensions that come directly from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (point violations). Regardless of the exact offense, if a person is deemed eligible, specialized driving privileges may be granted and could include the following.

  • Ignition interlock
  • Driving during certain hours
  • The ability to drive between specific locations.
  • To and From work
  • Pick up children from daycare
  • Take children to school
  • Drive for doctors appointments
  • Drive to court related events
