What is a conditional license?

A conditional license allows you to drive with certain restrictions. If you are convicted of driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving while ability impaired (DWAI) in New York, you will likely lose your driving privileges. Your driver’s license can be suspended or revoked for months or even years, depending on the offense.

Eligible individuals can obtain a conditional license and use it to drive under limited circumstances. You must follow all the restrictions of the conditional license, including the specified times and locations you are allowed to drive.

Some examples include traveling to work, driving to college, attending medical appointments and going to court. You are also allowed to choose a consecutive three-hour period once a week to drive anywhere you wish.

Because obtaining a conditional license can be complicated, it is a good idea to consult a knowledgeable New York DWI defense attorney. Contact Brill Legal Group today if you are facing DWI or DWAI charges.
