Is it possible to get a hardship license from the court with a felony DWI charge? How about a conditional license from DMV?
It was a low reading with no accident, I was wondering if my attorney will be able to do a hardship hearing if it's a felony, and will I be able to get a conditional license from the DMV while my case is pending or is that only for misdemeanors?
You should speak to your attorney about the specific facts and legal circumstances. You can get a conditional license...
Am I allowed to leave the state after being released on ROR for a dwi charge? I'm in NY if that changes things.
I was arrested for a dwi charge the other night and I was released on my own recognizance the next morning after going to court. I had already had a trip planned to Arizona to go and look for a new job and apartment as I've been planning to move for quite a while now. Am I allowed to leave the state still? I already purchased the plane ticket and can't get a refund and I need to move soon because my lease on my house will be ending soon.

Road test with ignition interlock?
This is kind of a gray area in which I have not been able to find much information for my friend who was convicted of a dwi a few years ago. Her license was revoked for a year which she fully served and she is now getting her life back together post dwi conviction and is in the process of getting relicensed, she has her permit and has scheduled her road test. She has a vehicle registered to her with an interlock device installed. Our question is if it is necessary to use the car with the interlock for the road test or can another vehicle with no interlock be used? There are rolling retests with an interlock device and she does not want this to become an issue during the road test. This is a court ordered restriction and she is trying to be as compliant as possible. Are there exceptions for this when it comes to the road test? If necessary to have the interlock for road test, should she pull over during her road test should a rolling retest arise? If some knowledge or insight on this situation can be shared it would be greatly appreciated.
She can look at her conditions, but its usually a condition that she have interlock in any vehicle that she owns or...
Friends license was revoked for DWI, she was approved to reapply but has to start from scratch. (written/permit then road test).
Its been a few years in which she hasn't driven, she is currently on probation with interlock requirements. She wants to know if she is allowed to practice driving with a licensed driver in a borrowed vehicle in preparation for her road test as soon as she gets her permit. Or is there another process she has to follow, such as is she only limited to practicing for her road test with her permit in a vehicle with a interlock device already installed? Or do the interlock requirements only apply once she is fully relicensed. There isn't much information about this. Do the interlock requirements apply to the entire relicensing process? She doesn't have a car yet so it would be helpful to know because if the restrictions do apply to the entire process, she can purchase a vehicle sooner insure it and get the interlock device installed. She has changed her life completely and wants to be fully compliant, the process is just tough to follow starting from scratch. Does she have to appear to the road test site in a vehicle with the ignition interlock device installed in it once it is time for her to retake? Sorry for all the questions in one, we are just trying to clear up this confusion.
Lots of questions but a single answer. She must have an interlock device in any vehicle she operates.

Applying to get driver's license back after revocation by NYS DMV for DWI and DUI
Hi: I was arrested for DWI and driving while impaired within 6 months about 4 years ago. I pled guilty, got in-house treatment and outpatient treatment and entered a 12-step program. I have now been sober since the day of my second arrest. The Judge ordered that I be allowed to keep my driver's license, although I had to get an interlock, and sentenced me to 3 years' probation. However, Probation advised me that NYS DMV had suspended my license for 6 months. After that 6 month period was completed, Probation gave me a letter to bring to DMV, recommending that my driver's license be reinstated, with ignition interlock. I brought this to DMV, and was advised that DMV had revoked my license for 5 years. I was told by attorneys that it would cost a lot of money to challenge this, and that I might not be successful. I just completed Probation. My Probation officer recommended that I go to DMV to reapply, and sue if I wasn't given my license back. I am seeking advice on what to do.
My advice for your next step is to call the State DMV in Albany. Local DMV workers sometimes give inconsistent...
