Hardship / Cinderella / Work License- Massachusetts

A hardship license is a restricted license in that it allows you to drive for a set 12 hour period, 7 days a week. In order to be granted a hardship license, you will need to provide adequate documentation that you would suffer a significant “hardship” without this limited use license. In Massachusetts, the RMV only considers hardships related to work, school, or important regular medical appointments. The RMV now requires VERY specific documentation before it will grant you a hardship license.

I am an expert in Hardship license issues. I will help you gather and prepare the necessary paperwork and then represent you at the RMV hardship hearing. I am well-known to the Boston- RMV hearings officers, and my success rate at these hearings is over 95%. The last thing you want to do is show up at the RMV and wait 2 hours, only to then learn that your paperwork is insufficient or defective and have your hardship request denied. People often have a difficult time getting a hardship license at the second hearing.

Am I Eligible for a Massachusetts Hardship License?

Whether or not you are eligible for a hardship license will depend on several factors, the most important of which is the specific violation/charge for which your license has been suspended. Other factors may include your driving history, age (if under 21), criminal record, outstanding payments/citations, and facts relating to your driving in any relevant police reports.

If you are looking to get a hardship license because your license has been suspended for OUI/DUI/DWI, please refer to my OUI penalties page to see if/ when you are eligible.

Contact my office if you've been charged with a Massachusetts OUI or any other criminal offense. I am available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for your free initial phone consultation.

Client Reviews
"Ben Urbelis recently represented me in an OUI case in which I had crashed my car. I honestly did not believe I had any chance of beating it, but fortunately for me Ben was outstanding and all charges were dropped. In my first hearing he was calm, assertive and straight to the point. I was extremely impressed and satisfied. I left my hearing feeling confident that I had made the right choice of hiring him. I am positive I would have lost this case and walked away with an OUI if I hadn't. I am very happy with how he handled my case and how reassured I felt having him as my lawyer." MC
"When I found myself charged with my 3rd DUI I was certain without a doubt that I was facing 6 months to 2 1/2 years in state prison. I can’t believe you were able to guide me calmly through the whole nerve wracking process, never sugar coating anything, staying honest and always keeping me informed the whole time. I still can’t believe that in the end you pulled off a miracle to avoidany jail time. I would recommend you to anyone in the same situation. Thank you so much. You saved me.” JL

"Thank you for your excellent representation in this matter. Coming from out of town, it wasreassuringto have an attorney who was so well organized and on top of the process. It was very clear that the judge was not only familiar with you, but had a great deal of respect for you in the courtroom. I appreciate all the effort you put into my case, and thank you again for a successful representation!" RC
