- Driving to your place of employment to perform the normal duties of your occupation.
- Receiving scheduled medical attention or obtain prescribed drugs.
- Attending classes at a college or school in which you are enrolled as a student.
- Attending support organizations for the treatment of alcohol or other drugs.
- Attending a driver education program or alcohol/drug assessment and treatment program.
- Attend court, report to community supervision or probation, or to perform community service.
- Transport unlicensed immediate family members to obtain medical care or prescriptions, to work, or to school.
- Attend any programs or activities ordered by an accountability court judge.
DDS may also specify:
- the places you can travel to

Limited driving permits are not valid for driving a commercial vehicle.
A limited driving permit will be revoked by DDS if:

- another suspension is imposed.
