Scope of Operation for a Limited Driving Privilege (LDP)

While the main purpose of obtaining a limited driving privilege is to allow a person to drive to and from work, Section 302.309.3(2) RSMo broadens the privilege to drive.

Under the statute, limited privileges may be granted for the following purposes:

  1. Business, occupation or employment,
  2. Seeking medical attention,
  3. Attending educational institution,
  4. Attending drug or alcohol treatment,
  5. Looking for Ignition Interlock Device (IID) provider services, or
  6. Various situations that would create undue or unreasonable hardship for the driver.

If an individual is unable to drive and the situation creates a significant problem for the driver and/or his loved ones, subcategory 6 leaves room for the evaluation of individual circumstances.

For example, an operator who cares for a disabled child or elderly parent may be allowed to drive to and from doctor's appointments and the parent's home. An expanded privelege must be requested in the LDP application before submission to the Department of Revenue. Specific locations that the driver will need to travel to and from must be included. If this is proved to be a significant hardship, the limited permit will likely be expanded to include the specific locations listed.

If you have questions regarding whether or not you're eligible for an LDP and/or whether the LDP will grant you the privilege to drive to and from a certain location or for a certain reason, call the attorneys at Millikan Wright, LLC for a free consultation at (314) 621-0622.
