Is there a way to fight the DMV's decision to issue a conditional license?
I was charged with a DWI in 2007, but only recently convicted in January of this year. during this time i had a conditional, but it was taken away due to riding an uninsured dirtbike on the block adjacent to mine. The suspension time for the no insurance has long since cleared but when i talked to the DMV they said they cant "clear" my license because of the open DWI. Im a full-time student and was a full-time worker now part-time and afraid of losing my job because of having no license and needing rides, let alone getting to school. I wanted to know if theres anyway to fight this decision and restore a conditional license.
You should consult with the attorney who represented you on the DWI.
How do I get my car out of forfeiture hearing after DWI arrest in Long Island?
I was arrested for DWI in Nassau county. No accident and it's my first offense. I blew .14. The DA is trying to keep my car. Is the da successful in these hearings? What do I need to show or argue at the krimstock hearing? I am hiring a lawyer for the criminal charges but he said it would be another fee to handle the civil hearing. Any advice is appreciated.
Sometimes you can work out a deal and "buy" your car back. I think there are guidelines for when the seek forfeiture so...
Am I able to establish residence in a state without a lifetime look back period for drivers and become licensed?
I have 5 dwi convictions, only 1 of which is in the past 10 years. All my convictions are in N.Y., where I'm considered a persistently dangerous driver and ineligible for a license. I have since gotten sober and with to continue rebuilding my life and be a productive member of society. I am however finding it extremely hard to find gainful employment without a drivers license, not to mention a felony record.
Theoretically yes. If you move, you will have to contact that State's DMV and find out what you need to do, or if you...
My friend's car was impounded following at arrest for drunk driving in NYS but is likely to get the car back?
My friend was arrested for driving while intoxicated and blew a 0.09 at the precinct a little over a week ago. He was released the next day as it was his first offense. He was driving a friends car however and it is impounded in Nassau County. He went to the court once after the arrest and he cannot drive for 30 days and has to reappear in court in January. The owner of the car and the driver have to go get the car in about 2 weeks but apparently it is possible to have the car taken away. Is there a good chance for the car to be given back since it was not the drivers car?
There is a strong chance the car will be returned. There is a an innocent owner argument to be made on the owner's side....
Can you travel out of the country on a conditional discharge?
I have been convicted of dwi refusal and sentenced to a conditional discharge. The form which outlines the conditions of my discharge does not specifically mention travel restrictions but does state "follow the instructions of probation department in carrying out these conditions." I have not been assigned a probation officer to direct inquiries to.
Unless the court has given you directions not to travel outside of the country then you should be fine. Also, if you...
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. I received my conditional license and I can only do the essentials with that, but I hear I get my license back for 20 days on my next appearance. I was just wondering if the time passed counts towards that 90 day mandatory suspension or if it doesn't start until after I'm convicted, which technically has not happened yet?
No the time that you have been suspended for the suspension pending prosecution does not count toward the mandatory 90...

I believe this is "unauthorized use of a motor vehicle"
