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 alcohol or drug treatment,
  5. Seeking the required services of an Ignition Interlock provider, or
  6. Other circumstances found to create an undue hardship on operator.

The subcategory (f) leaves open the possibility of allowing an operator to drive in situations where the inability to drive creates a serious problem for him or her or their love ones. For example, an operator who cares for a disabled child or elderly parent may be allowed to drive to and from the parent's home and doctor's appointments. The request for the expanded privilege, must be requested in the LDP application submitted to Department of Revenue setting out specific locations that the operator is requesting to drive to and from. Upon providing proof that this is in fact a hardship, the Department of Revenue will likely grant the expansion of the limited permit to include the locations listed on the LDP application.

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.
