Thank you for your question.

Yes, it would be possible to request a restricted license for up to six months time.

The first thing you need to do is apply for a ***** *****cense. It will be immediately suspended. You will need that official form from the DMV to file with the court where your fines exist.

You have to file a petition with the General District Court where you have fines (all of them).

The petition can be found here. Be sure to contact each General District Court to see if they have particular local rules regarding file a petition for a restricted license.
