Arizona Hardship License
The Arizona DOT issues hardship licenses, which are known as restricted licenses, for first offense chemical test refusals and operating under the influence suspensions, as well as suspensions for driving while suspended. There is a ninety (90) day waiting period which must be served prior to obtaining an Arizona Restricted License. The Arizona DMV will require ignition interlock use as a condition for any DUI or breathalyzer refusal related restricted license. The Arizona DMV also requires proof of financial responsibility (SR-22 insurance) and completion of required alcohol treatment programs.
You can appeal Arizona License Suspensions to the Executive Hearing Office of the Arizona Motor Vehicle Department (MVD). You can reach the Executive Hearing Office by phone at 602-712-7737.
Unlike Massachusetts hardship licenses, Restricted Arizona Licenses limit driving to and from work, medical appointments, or alcohol treatment programs.
