Hello all. I have a bit of a situation with the MVD that Im

Hello all. I have a bit of a situation with the MVD that I'm needing some assistance with. I have a limited license due to too many points on my record. When I got the license, I had the affidavit signed and filled out by my work. I was advised that this is sufficient for school or work purposes. A few days ago, I got pulled over for driving 60 in the 75 in the left hand lane and looking at my cell phone briefly. I explained to the officer that I was going in to study. On the back of my license, it says restriction school/employment. He ran it through NCIC and they only had an employment restriction on it. He cited me for careless driving and driving while suspended. I explained what I was told at the MVD. He told me that if I could produce some sort of paperwork proving that, he would dismiss the driving while suspended. I called the MVD, who advised me to get an affidavit signed by the school and have the restricition added on. I have the affidavit, I also have a date set for arraignment. I'm needing advice on how to proceed forward and what to expect. Thanks!
