What Does It Mean to Have a Conditional License?

After your DWI arraignment, you may be eligible for a conditional license. The judge has the option of suspending your license under VTL Section 510 (3a), which means they have not allowed you to obtain a conditional license. In Nassau County, the only person who can lift this discretionary suspension is the judge who issued it.

How Much Does a Conditional License Cost in New York?

According to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, it costs approximately $75.00 to obtain a conditional license and $225.00 to join the Impaired Driver Program (IDP), formerly known as the Drinking Driver Program or “DPP.”

Where and When Can You Drive with a Conditional License in New York?

As the holder of a conditional license, you are permitted to drive exclusively under the following circumstances:

  • Getting to and from work
  • During working hours, if your job requires you to drive; however, remember that a conditional license does not allow you to operate any vehicle that requires a commercial driver’s license (CDL), such as a taxi or semi-truck; however, a conditional license does not allow you to drive to and from a high school to attend as a student
