   Hardship Letter Keep License

I am writing this letter to request that you not suspend my driver's license. It is set to be suspended on {date}. The incident that prompted this measure was {description of incident. Mention any mitigating circumstances that might provoke sympathy.}

I understand that the responsibility for the situation rests entirely on me, and I have {joined AA, updated my insurance, signed up for a class, etc.} to correct the problem that caused this issue. However, I hope that you understand that due to emotional and financial hardships, I cannot afford to lose my license at this time.

My current employment situation at {work} requires that I drive {distance} every day. There are no public routes that would get me to work on time, and I am the only driver in my household. I also have responsibilities to my {spouse, children, etc.} They are incapable of driving due to {age, medical condition, etc.} and they rely on me to drive them to {places}, which {is/are} {distance} away.

I hope that you can understand that I am not asking for your sympathy or leniency on behalf of myself; I need my license to provide for my family and to keep my head above water financially.

Thank you for considering my request.
