Getting A Conditional License In New York

After the DWI arraignment, you may be eligible for a conditional license. The judge has the option of suspending your license pursuant to VTL section 510 (3a), which means he or she has not allowed you to obtain a conditional license. The only person who can lift this discretionary suspension is the judge who issued it.

At the Nassau County law firm of Lerner & Lerner, P.C., we know how important your license is, and we will do everything we can to ensure that you can get a conditional license. A hardship license may be available to you during the first 30 days after arraignment if you can show that there is an "undue hardship" and virtually no other way for you to get to and from work or school.
