Underage DWI

Nassau County Underage DWI Lawyer

Helping Underage Drivers Fight Serious DWI Penalties

In Nassau County and across New York state, lawmakers and police officers have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to underage drinking and driving. If you are under 21 years of age and are caught driving with any amount of alcohol in your system, you will be charged with underage DWI/DUI or under the zero tolerance law, depending on the reading.

The consequences associated with an underage DWI conviction are steep and include fines, probation, increased insurance rates, community service and even jail. There are also collateral consequences to consider. A criminal conviction could affect your ability to obtain and keep scholarships, college eligibility and your ability to get a job. In addition, if you are placed on probation, you cannot leave the state.

Loss Of License For Under 21 DWI In New York

If you are not yet 21 years of age and you are convicted of:

  • DWI — you will lose your license for at least a year
  • Refusing a breath test — your license will be revoked for one year
  • Aggravated DWI — your license will automatically be revoked for one year
  • A second underage DWI within five years — you will lose your license for one year or until you are 21 years of age, whichever is longer

Even if you are found not guilty of the criminal charges, you will still face a DMV hearing and could lose your license. This is why it is so important to get the right legal counsel on your side right away.
