License Suspensions in Hudson Valley

Poughkeepsie DWI Defense Attorneys

DWI convictions can subject drivers to a number of serious penalties, including large fines and terms of imprisonment. For many, license suspensions or revocations are also a consequence that create a number of burdens, especially if one depends on their ability to drive in order to travel to and from work. At Michael R. Varble & Associates, P.C., our legal teams works tirelessly to protect our clients from license suspensions.

License suspensions or revocations will vary from case to case and will depend on a number of unique circumstances, including an offender's age, blood alcohol content (BAC), and prior criminal history. A DWI lawyer from our Poughkeepsie firm can explain more about the license penalties you may be facing during a free consultation.

License Revocation for DWI in New York

License penalties for drivers over the age of 21 charged with DWI, driving while impaired by Drugs (DWAI-Drug), or driving while impaired by alcohol and drugs (DWAI-Combination):

  • 1st Offense – 6 month minimum revocation
  • 2nd Offense – 1 year minimum revocation
  • 3rd Offense or More – 1 year minimum revocation

License penalties for drivers over the age of 21 charged with aggravated DWI (BAC over .18) include:

  • 1st Offense – 1 year minimum revocation
  • 2nd Offense – 18 month minimum revocation
  • 3rd Offense or More – 18 month minimum revocation

The state of New York also enforces a Zero Tolerance law for drivers under the age of 21 convicted of DWI. This means that underage drivers will face longer license suspensions for DWI offenses. Drivers who refuse to take a chemical test may also have their license automatically suspended and revoked for at least one year.
