Massachusetts Hardship License Lawyer

In Massachusetts, individuals who have had their driver’s license suspended or revoked can apply for a “hardship license.” Commonly referred to as a Work License or Cinderella License, a MA Hardship License permits the holder to operate a motor vehicle for a 12 hour period each day for the purpose of getting to and from work. In order to obtain a Hardship License, an individual must attend a Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) hearing. At the RMV hearing, a determination will be made regarding the issuance of a MA Cinderella License. RMV Hardship Licenses are available in Massachusetts to individuals who have had their license revoked and suspended for the following offense types:

  • Operating Under the Influence (OUI) of Alcohol/Drugs
  • Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO)
  • First Offense (24D) Alcohol/Drug Program
  • (94C) Drug Conviction

In order to receive a Hardship License, an applicant must meet certain criteria. The specific criterion that must be met is determined by the type of underlying offense. In MA, each offense category has a criteria checklist to be used by the RMV when making the determination. Yet even if the applicable criteria are met, an applicant is not guaranteed to obtain a Hardship License. The decision to issue a Hardship License is granted only at the reasonable discretion of the RMV based on the specific facts surrounding the case.

Dear Sam, I can not thank you enough for your expertise in the handling of Chris's case as well as your sensitivity and caring attitude. toward him. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. He really expressed how good it felt to be able to talk to you! Sincerely and may God bless you. Pat W.
I really appreciate your prompt and highly effective assistance on this matter. After six different OUI attorneys told me that there was no way to recall the warrant and dismiss the charges against me without me returning to Mass from California, you managed to accomplish what they said was impossible. Thanks again! Neil D., Boston, MA
