Restoration Of Driving Privileges In New York

If your New York driver's license has been revoked, you can apply for a new one after the revocation period is over. Unfortunately, if you are unfamiliar with the process, you may make mistakes that can lead to lengthy delays.

I am traffic ticket attorney James M. Wagman. I offer a free initial consultation to discuss the restoration of driving privileges in New York. From my offices in Catskill, I help clients throughout upstate New York and the Hudson Valley get back on the road after their driver's licenses have been suspended for DWI, traffic tickets and other violations.

Understanding The Driver's License Restoration Process

New York offers online restoration of driver's licenses. The online restoration process can allow you to get your driver's license back much faster than through the mail. However, there are steps you need to complete before you can request approval online. In addition, for some suspensions/revocations, you need to apply in writing.

Here are examples of times when you need to apply for driver's license restoration in writing:

  • You had an accident while uninsured.
  • You failed a road test when it was required.
  • You have a restricted license as the result of a DWI conviction.

You need to complete additional steps before you can request restoration of your driver's license if:

  • You have two or more DWI convictions for drugs or alcohol in the past 25 years.
  • You were or are on probation that included restrictions on reapplying for a driver's license.

As your lawyer, I will review the circumstances of your suspension or revocation and guide you through the steps you need to take to get your New York driving privileges restored as quickly as possible.
