What would be the best course of action that I can take to get a limited license for work when I go to court?

My charge is 4th degree DWI. I use my car for work but now my license has been revoked and I have to rely on my parents to drive me to work. I still have to go to court on the 6th of next month.

Hello.  I would need to know more details of your situation and criminal legal history pertaining to the DWI/DUI's in order to provide you with sound advice for your situation.  With no question, in your circumstances you need legal counsel.  If you were to contact me, likely I would provide you many concrete action steps you could and should be taking in order to improve the outcome of your present open legal issues, as well as the overall quality of your life. It is the role of the attorney to advocate for your interests and the attorney will explore with you shaping arguments regarding you being permitted to drive. A judge may grant you the ability to drive but with restrictions.  All the best.

Argue that you need the automobile for employment.  Explain the burden on your parents and how otherwise it will be difficult for you to keep the job without transportation.  Specifically request the limited license from the court.  You also can negotiate this with the state's attorney when you show up for the hearing.
