I had a DWI almost 2 years ago, reapplied for my license a year ago, had to pay 250 DRA and took the 10 week driver alcohol education classes in May of this year, the dmv is dragging their feet on releasing my driving privileges, they won't tell me why, can I sue them or can lawyer help me get my license back and my cdl class A as well, I don't know where to go with this and what to do next
It is not obvious why the DMV is dragging their feet on this, but it certainly is worth looking into. Your best bet...
I have a dwai and a dwi in ny over a five year period. In fla i then got a dwi reduced to reckless driving.
Needless to say, i no longer drink. My problem is that a dwai here in ny is a traffic infarction and not a criminal charge. It is the same as a 0.4 breath test or any impairment. Fla dmv is using this dwai and counting it as a first offense. Can they do this? thank you
I am sorry to hear about your situation. You may wish to repost this in the Fl. forum. I wish you the best of luck....
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.

My License was suspended for 1 year and that time is up. I have completed treatment and probation has cleared me to apply for my license again. Will I be denied for 5 years or can you win a hardship case to be reinstated earlier than the 5 year period?
Yes. but it is discretionary. Even with a "permanent" revocation, the person may apply to receive their license back,...
NYS DWI Probation and Ignition Interlock Requirement
Arrest for misd ADWi/DWI per se. No priors in 5 years (hence misdemeanor). Probation orders indicate "If Court and Probation give permission to drive, the interlock must be installed on vehicles owned or operated". Further in Probation Orders are "Conditions of Ignition Interlock". Is it correct to interpret the orders that the interlock is required ONLY if they Court and Probation give the defendant permission to drive? His license is revoked and he received a notice from NYS DMV he is not eligible for a Conditional License so neither can legally give permission. Both are trying to say if defendant doesn't get IID installed on 3 vehicles in the household (none owned by him), he is in violation (already served max jail sentence of 1 year). Is he in violation? What may happen if so?
I believe that interlock is statutorily required if you are convicted of dui.
