If you have been convicted of Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) then your license may be suspended for 3 months. On the other hand, if you are convicted for a New York DUI then your license will be suspended for six months.
Under both these cases, you may file for a conditional license provided you meet the following criteria:
1. You have no prior DUI or DWI offense in the past five years.
2. You have not refused a breath test in the past five years.
3. You participate in the New York State DMV Drinking Driver’s Program. (You will have to pay for this program out of your own pocket.)
If you fail to meet these criteria then you will be rendered ineligible to receive the conditional license.
