After a DWI conviction there can be a long process to obtain a new full driver’s license from the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. The Westchester County DWI lawyers at Proto, Sachs & Brown, LLP always suggest you have a current copy of your DMV driver’s abstract including a copy of your lifetime driving records with the DMV. http://dmv.ny.gov
DMV Regulations that govern relicensing of drivers after multiple DWI convictions can be complex. Recently, it was held by the New York Courts that the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles can deny an application for relicensing if the applicant’s lifetime driving record shows five or more alcohol or drug related driving convictions. This is a lifetime rule. The DMV can look back to a driver’s entire history. This rule also includes convictions for the violation of driving while ability impaired, VTL 1192.1 and driving while under the influence of drugs including marijuana only, VTL 1192.4 in addition to a DWI VTL 1192.2 or VTL 1192.3 conviction.
