If you blew a breathalyzer test or refused such a test and you have a job and/or enrolled in school and are not near public transportation, you may qualify for a so-called Cinderella License (7:00-7:00) until your real license privileges are restored. In order to obtain such a license, you have to sign up for the 24D program ASAP (call a vendor near you to set up an intake meeting), wait 3 business days and then take your 24D certificate and proof of a job, school and lack of public transportation to the Registry.

Don’t hesitate to call me if you need further legal assistance. Doug Stoddart 508-243-4877.
