In Ohio there are certain hard time limits on when you can start driving after a DUI arrest. In Akron most courts will not consider driving privileges until after 15 or 30 days depending on your type of case, even on a first offense.
Driving privileges can be granted for important things, but incredibly limited ones, such as: work, school, medical, and vocational reasons. Legally speaking driving privileges cannot be granted for child care appointments (think to and from day care).
There are other ways to obtain driving privileges, or rather your full license back, but it is a high risk/high reward type of risk. This involves challenging whether or not the police officer should have even given you a breath test. In some Akron courts the judges will not give privileges if this attempt fails.
