If you are charged with a DWI, driving while impaired by drugs (DWAI-Drug), or aggravated driving while intoxicated (A-DWI) offense, you will lose your right to hold a driver’s license for a certain amount of time, if not permanently, depending on various factors, such as your age and prior offenses. The differing charges are as follows:
A conditional license allows you to drive under certain circumstances even with your driving privileges suspended. You may be able to obtain this license if you can prove that the loss of your privileges would cause you significant hardship. For instance, if there is no public transportation available and you are unable to commute to work to receive wages. Importantly, this cannot be permanently used as a substitute for a driver’s license.
You may be able to obtain a conditional license in New York state by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) if your permanent license has been suspended or revoked because of an alcohol or drug-related violation. But first, you must attend an Impaired Driver Program approved by the DMV.
