Conditional license from DMV?
I was recently convicted of DWAI in New York. I also attended a hearing at the DMV because I refused to take the breathalyzer when I was arrested. After the hearing, the DMV took my license away for a year based on my refusal. Can I get a conditional license? The woman judge hearing the case was really mean.
You can apply for the conditional license in light of the plea.
Dwi in nyc
I asked this before but made an error. So ill ask again. I was stopped at a check pt in queens. Arrested and taken to the precinct.

Can it be brought down to a violation and what kind? Does it affect my license?

How does E felony probation work For a dui?
