Is Lifetime License Revocation Possible?

Yes it is, much to the dismay to many New Yorkers who have found their lives changed after a DWI or serious driving offense conviction.

Under New York laws, you can have your license revoked for life if you are convicted of a third, fourth or subsequence DWI. After your arrest, the DMV will conduct a 25-year look-back investigation into your driving record to see if you have enough offense on your record to warrant a lifetime revocation.

What Causes Revocation?

It does not have to be a DWI charge that triggers a revocation. Any serious driving offense (SDO) can result in a lifetime ban. Serious driving offenses include:

  • Violations that result in fatalities
  • 20 points or more on your driver's license
  • Two five-point offenses
