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.

If i get a dui in New York and im from ontario and a dual citizen what happens to my ON license
Hello. I was visiting NY from Canada and he was pulled over. They gave me a ticket for refusing to take breathlyzer and I was arrested. I got a ticket for refusing the breathlyzer even though I attempted two times but failed the test due to not being able blow hard enough due to lung cancer.

Does pre-conviction suspension in a DWAI ruling count towards the mandatory 90 day suspension?
I was arrested for drunk driving back in June in Suffolk County, NY. Long story short, I was ruled with a DWAI as long as i completed 50 hours community service and I'm assuming I must complete the DDP. I finished the service early and I'm waiting to go back to find out the rest.
