Do I need my attorney to petition the court for removal of my ingnition interlock device?

Is there a time limit for revoking a NY license after a conviction?
I was "convicted" of a DWI in 1994 in absentia and I question the process because I was not at the sentencing and never informed of the outcome. I only learned of the conviction a few months ago via a self initiated records review. I called the court who THEN informed me of the fine after having to research the case.

I had no attorney and the case had been adjourned while I attended treatment, never to learn of the outcome until the past couple of weeks. I'm not only going to lose a job that I am up for but my current one as well because it's clear that someone in this court failed to do their job.
Generally speaking, no, there isn't a time limit.
