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?
