A  suspension of driving privileges imposed by a court or the BMV may be stayed if a court grants a Specialized Driving Privilege (SDP). The SDP must remain in effect for a minimum of one-hundred and eighty (180) days and may include conditions such as the use of an ignition interlock device and/or restricted driving hours and/or routes. IC 9-30-16-3.

This license may be available for a person with an OWI administrative suspension, OWI suspension at sentencing, and for many other types of suspensions.

Habitual Traffic Violators (HTV) with five (5) year, ten (10) year, and even lifetime HTV license suspensions may be eligible for the SDP.
