What Is “Restricted Privilege to Drive” in Arizona?

By Breyer Law Offices on May 22, 2013

Someone who is under “restricted privilege to drive” in Arizona, according to ARS 28-3473, is a person who has had their license suspended but is still allowed to drive under certain circumstances. Often, this person has a suspended license because of failure to obey a traffic law or because of being involved in a car accident. If someone is under restricted privilege to drive and they disobey the restrictions, they face a class 1 misdemeanor. Someone with this type of driving restriction may be allowed to drive:

  • To and from work
  • To and from school
  • To and from a screening, education or treatment facility
  • To visit a probation officer
  • To visit a doctor or hospital
  • To go to a certified ignition interlock device service facility


The only way a person can receive this restricted driving privilege is if they have satisfied all other requirements imposed as part of their sentence and they don’t have any other driver’s license suspensions. This person also usually has to pay a fine.

Why Are Restricted Drivers Dangerous?

While not all drivers with restricted privilege to drive are dangerous, there is a reason they have a suspended license. This could be because they didn’t carry insurance on their car, or it could be because they caused a car accident while violating other laws. If you learn you were hit by a driver with a suspended license, chances are you are not alone. It is important to seek medical help immediately, and then call an experienced car accident attorney.
