Does it make financial sense to get a conditional license? Also what happens if I dont have a license to surrender to the DMV

Can an aggravated DWI be dismissed due to postponements?
A friend was charged with aggravated DWI in March 2014 - BAC was .20 and there was one prior DWI six years ago. Property damage - no injuries. The case is still ongoing due to postponements. The case was recently moved from a Town Court to a County Court - I think because it is a felony charge.
