Employer Verification Letter for DWI Restricted Licenses

In some of the courts where I regularly defend DWI clients, the clerk’s office requires an employer verification letter in order to issue a restricted driver’s license.

In general, a work verification letter needs to be on letterhead and contain:

  • Your employer’s name
  • The physical address where you work
  • Your schedule
  • How long it takes you to drive to & from work
  • If you need to drive during work hours

This is definitely an area where it pays to have a local attorney, since restricted license procedures vary widely around the state.
