You may be allowed to operate outside the hours listed on your occupational license if you are:
- employed by a unit of government
- providing services to a unit of government
- employed by a public utility or medical services provider
and the work you are doing involves providing essential life-sustaining emergency services to the public.
If you are driving outside the times listed on your occupational license, you must be providing life-sustaining services during an emergency. Emergency operation during unlisted hours is only allowed to and from home, work and any emergency site.
An emergency service provider must list less than 60 hours for non-emergency operation to allow for driving time during an emergency. Total hours of operation for both emergency (unlisted) and non-emergency (listed) cannot exceed 12 hours per day and 60 hours per week.
An emergency services provider may be required by law enforcement to verify hours of operation and prove that they were, or are currently, providing essential life sustaining services.
