Can I Get a Conditional License if Arrested for DWI in Rockland County or NYS?

  • When you’re arrested for DWI and go to court, the judge is required to suspend your license at the arraignment, irrespective of the charge.
  • If the lab or breathalyzer result is in the file and the original report from the officer or you refuse to take a test and the officer has filled out the proper form, the judge is required to suspend your license.
  • You are entitled to a hardship license when you’ve submitted to a blood-alcohol test and failed.
  • A hardship license allows you to drive to and from work, school, and from appointments with medical doctors while the case is pending.
  • If the application is not made or you don’t qualify for the application for a hardship license, you will not have a license while the case is pending.
