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 Refusal hearing
I attended my first hearing at the end of April the officer didn't show so my license was reissued immediately. However, as of today (8/20) I have not received notice of my second hearing. Is this normal? From what I'm being told I should have had a second hearing within a month of my first appearance.
It is not at all uncommon for the second hearing to be scheduled many months after the first. Many times nine months...
DWAI (vs. DWI) disclosure statement for application?
Does this look reasonable?

Please note that this traffic infraction differs decidedly from a violation of 1192.2 - Driving While Intoxicated offence in New York, which is a criminal misdemeanor and reflects a blood alcohol level above the legal limit of .08% BAC."

Charged with DUI in 2012 and found not guilty and plead guilty in 2014 to DUAI per my PD.
I have taken the VIP program and then found out I have to take a DDP class for having 2 alcohol related cases in less than 10 years, if I was found not guilty in 2012 if I get the paperwork from the court for the 2012 case would that make a difference or just because I was charged do I have to take the class?
