What You Need to Know About Conditional Licenses in New York

When someone loses their license due to a DUI or DWI, there is a chance that they may receive a conditional license. Of course, conditional licenses are not the same as standard licenses, and they are quite restrictive. However, obtaining a conditional license may very well be the difference between keeping your job and losing your job. If you are someone who has recently been charged with a DWI, or you have received a conditional license and you are accused of violating the terms of your conditional license, you most likely have several questions about conditional licenses in New York State. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable New York criminal defense attorney to learn more about conditional licenses and how our firm can assist you, regardless of your situation. Here are some of the questions you may have:

Where can I drive with a conditional license?

If you are issued a conditional license, you will only be allowed to drive to certain places. For example, you may drive to work, school, and you may drive during a 3-hour window of your choosing so you can take care of errands, such as grocery shopping. You are also allowed to drive to court-ordered probationary activities, to and from a medical appointment, and to and from your child’s school/daycare.

Can my conditional license be revoked?

If you are caught violating the terms of your conditional license, there is a very good chance that you will have your conditional license revoked. This means that you are prohibited from driving at times/to locations not included in the terms of your conditional license, or if you are found guilty of any moving violation, you will most likely have your license revoked. Examples of moving violations include cell phone violations, seat belt violations, speeding, and more.
