What We Do

Drive-To-Work assists low income or previously incarcerated persons to restore their driving privileges so they can drive to work and keep a job. Recognizing how important a driver's license is to many jobs, Drive-To-Work provides legal and other services and is the only organization in Virginia directly addressing this issue.

Since its founding 2007, Drive-To-Work has grown to provide multiple programs to help individuals restore their driving privileges. They are:
• Individual legal representation before courts and agencies to remove the barriers to getting a license;
• Suggestions of legislative and administrative changes to improve opportunities for all suspended Virginia drivers to restore their driving privileges, consistent with public safety;
• Educational programs, including operating DTW Driving School (dtwdrivingschool.org), which offer driver improvement clinics and other courses required by DMV;
• Pre-release seminars on “How To Get Your License Back” for offenders at Department of Corrections correctional centers.

Our #GivingTuesdayGreaterLYH greatest need is reaching potential clients who are not aware our services exist.

Interesting Info

We have supported the efforts of more than 2,400 people.
The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles reported that out of 6.1 million Virginia drivers, over 674,000 were suspended in 2019.
Our goal is to reach potential clients that may not be aware of our services, to provide client fee support if necessary, to rework our DOC program for COVID.
