Will my obtaining a work restricted driver's license be sufficient to have a driving while barred charge dropped/reduced?
Question Details: I have a pending charge of driving while barred. I was told by the county attorney that if I obtain my drivers license before the court date they can reduce/drop the driving while barred charge. Well I was only able to obtain a work restricted driver's license, would this be sufficient to have driving while barred charge dropped/reduced?
It is at the discretion or free choice of the prosecutor, so there is no definitive answer. That said, if you were driving *for work* while barred, so that the restricted license would have been applicable to the situation, there is a reasonable chance the prosecutor will dismiss or reduce. If you not been driving for work, so that the restricted license is irrelevant to the charge, it is most likely the prosecutor will not dismiss or reduce.
