Buffalo DWI Attorney Discusses Attaining a Conditional License Through the DMV
As an experienced Buffalo DWI Attorney I am often asked how one can acquire a conditional license after being charged with a DWI. If you’re charged with DWI, there are certain things that you’re going to have to do as requirements for the Department of Motor Vehicles. This is separate and distinct from the criminal court. This is strictly civil in nature. You’re going to have to contact the Department of Motor Vehicles once your DWI case is concluded, and they will make a determination based on your prior history, whether or not you’re entitled to a conditional license.
If you are, and you haven’t had a DWI within the preceding five years, you may be eligible for a conditional license. You have to attend a seven-week program that’s put on by the Department of Motor Vehicles. You have to complete that course in order to maintain your conditional license. Depending upon what you’re convicted of, whether it’s DWI or DWAI, will determine how long that conditional license will be in place.
Are you trying to attain a conditional license following your DWI conviction or charge? If so, contact the experienced Buffalo DWI Attorney John Dudziak.
