Lifetime driver's license revocation: are you at risk?

Is lifetime driver's license revocation possible in New York? It certainly is, much to the dismay of many New Yorkers who have found their driving privileges permanently revoked after a DWI or serious driving offense conviction. 

Under New York laws, you can have your driver's license permanently revoked after a:

  • Third, fourth or subsequent DWI conviction
  • Serious driving offense, which includes offenses totaling 20 points on your driver's license, any two five-point offenses or violations that result in fatalities

When you attempt to get your driver' license reinstated after such an offense, the DMV will conduct a 25-year lookback into your driving record. Based on this investigation, they will determine if your driver's license should be permanently revoked.

Driver's license revocation even for a few months is a nightmare for those who rely on their vehicles for getting to and from work, daycare, social events, shopping trips and more. A lifetime ban is almost unthinkable.

Of course, you don't have to accept their decision lying down. You are innocent until proven guilty in the eyes of the law. By mounting a skilled defense, you can give yourself the best possible chance of holding on to your driver's license and the lifestyle it permits.
