Obtaining a Limited Driving Privilege (LDP)

If your Missouri driving privilege is suspended, revoked, or denied and is not eligible for reinstatement but you need to drive for employment or other important matters, you may be eligible for a Limited Driving Privilege (LDP), also known as a “hardship license”.




There are two ways to apply for an LDP.


Submit an application to the Department of Revenue:

· You must submit a completed Application for Limited Driving Privilege (Form 4595) (instructions on form);

· If you do not already have an SR-22 form on file with the Department, you will need to have your insurance company provide such proof, or you may submit a copy of the form with your application; and

· If you have more than one alcohol offense or you have an active Chemical Revocation on your driver record, you must also submit proof of installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID). The installer of the device will notify the Department after the installation has been completed. This device must be certified by the Missouri Department of Transportation and installed on any vehicle you operate. You must maintain the device for at least the duration of the LDP. A court may require you to install an IID even if you have only one alcohol offense.

· Your application will be reviewed within approximately five working days and an order granting or denying an LDP will be sent to you by mail.


File a petition with the circuit court in the county where you live or work:

· A filing fee and court costs will be required if you file a petition with the court.

· You may need to seek legal advice when filing your petition.

· If the court grants the LDP and you do not currently have an SR-22 form on file with the Department, you will need to have your insurance company provide such proof, or you may submit a copy of the form to the Department

· If you have more than one alcohol offense or you have an active Chemical Revocation on your driver record, you must submit proof of installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID). The installer of the device will notify the Department of Revenue after the installation has been completed. This device must be certified by the Missouri Department of Transportation and installed on any vehicle you operate. You must maintain the device for at least the duration of the LDP. A court may require you to install an IID even if you have only one alcohol offense.
