Conditional Licenses in NY | What You Need to Know

There are few charges that are more damaging than DWIs. Unfortunately, when someone receives a DWI, there is a very good chance that person will lose his or her license. Rather obviously, losing a driver’s license can have far-reaching effects, including having a drastic impact on his or her social life, and, perhaps most importantly, his or her ability to get to and from work. Being unable to go to work and resume one’s life is a very serious punishment, and it can affect every other aspect of life. That being said, if you are someone who has recently received a DWI in New York, you may have heard of conditional licenses, and you are most likely looking into whether you qualify for one. Our firm is here to help. Please continue reading and speak with our experienced Rockland County criminal defense attorney to learn more about conditional licenses in New York state and how we may be able to help you receive one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the benefits of conditional licenses?

When someone receives a conditional license, they will gain the privilege to drive to work, school, court-ordered probationary activities, to/from your child’s school or daycare, to/from medical appointments, and during an assigned 3-hour window to anywhere of your choosing, one day per week.

What happens if I violate the terms of my conditional license?

When someone commits a moving violation (speeding, cell phone violations, etc.), drives to/from any location not permitted in the terms of their conditional license, or otherwise violates the terms of their conditional license, there is a very good chance that they will have the conditional license revoked. Unfortunately, this means that you will have to face the full ramifications of your initial DWI charge without a conditional license. For any further questions regarding the matter, please do not hesitate to pick up the phone and give our knowledgeable New York criminal defense attorney a call today. Our firm is ready to assist you in any way we can–all you have to do is ask.
