What exactly is a bread n’ butter license?

An Occupational Limited License, also known as a bread n’ butter license, is a driver’s license that is issued to individuals whose driving privileges have been suspended. This license allows individuals to retain their driving privileges for occupation, work, trade, medical treatment, or study purposes. 

There are many reasons why someone’s driver’s license may be suspended in the state of Pennsylvania. There are also several important distinctions between who is eligible for this license and who is not. Make sure you understand these distinctions by speaking to a Pennsylvania DUI attorney at the Law Offices of Steven E. Kellis.

As of August 25, 2017, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is no longer able to issue a bread n’ butter license (OLL) to individuals whose driving privileges have been suspended due to a DUI offense. However, individuals who have been charged with an Underage Alcohol offense are eligible to obtain a bread n’ butter license if it is their first offense.

Am I eligible for a bread n’ butter license if my driving license has been revoked, canceled, or recalled due to a DUI offense?

Individuals whose driving privileges have been affected by the above actions are not eligible to obtain a bread n’ butter license. You are also ineligible if you have been issued a bread n’ butter license in the past five years or if you have never been licensed by Pennsylvania or any other state.
