Looks like Dez Bryant lost his regular drivers license at some point…
and on June 21, 2012 was granted an order from the court that he was able to apply for an ‘Occupational License’. The last part of the document has a code listed in the Verdict section. The ‘ODLG’ stands for Occupational Drivers License Granted.
When your license is suspended or revoked (for reasons other than medical issues or delinquent child support) you might be able to apply for an occupational license. It’s a special restricted license that allows you to operate a non-commercial motor vehicle in only three circumstances:
For carrying out essential household duties
You can request one either from the county or district court in the county in which you reside (or to the court of original jurisdiction where you committed the offense that got your license suspended in the first place). You can find more info in the Texas Transportation Code Section 521.242, 37 Texas Administrative Code 15.7.
NOTE: If you are taking part in a special drug court program, you don’t need to file a petition. Your judge can grant you the occupational order.
He had 30 days from June 21, 2012 to obtain the occupational License from the DMV.
I will be contacting the attorney listed here to verify this information in the morning.
This video was posted on Youtube back on May 25, 2012 when a rapper named 2 Chainz was performing in Texas…
So was Dez driving illegally in this video where he’s willing to ham it up while behind the wheel of his Bentley?
Interesting. We will know more tomorrow.
