The Justice of the Peace in each county were given the authority to issue an Occupational Driver License (ODL) for those who have had their driver license suspended by the Department of Public Safety through the Driver Responsibility Program, commonly known as the Surcharge Program. There is a $41.00 fee.   Information and forms necessary to obtain the ODL are available online at this site.

The Legislature made this change in the law due to the unexpected negative consequences of the program.  Because of the surcharge program, the Department of Public Safety has suspended the driver’s license of over 1.3 million Texas citizens.
