Unfortunately, if someone does get a refusal and his license is suspended for a 12 month period, there is no chance to get an occupational limited license, we call it an OLL, or work permit, commonly referred to as a bread and butter license, here in the state of Pennsylvania.
If a person does plead guilty to a first offense DUI, the license will be suspended for one year. Now, after a 60 day period that person would be eligible for an occupational limited license, an OLL, to drive to and from work for the final 10 months. So for the first 60 days he cannot drive, it’s truly suspended. But for the final 10 months he would be eligible for an occupational limited license.
