Who Is Eligible For A Post-Revocation Conditional Driver’s License Following A Buffalo DWI Conviction?

All drivers – even first time offenders – convicted of Driving While Intoxicated, Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated, or Driving with a Blood Alcohol Content of .08% or Greater in the Buffalo area are required to have an ignition interlock device installed on any vehicle they wish to drive.

This device periodically checks the driver’s breath for alcohol.

It will shut off the vehicle or not allow it to start if alcohol is detected.

In some cases, a driver may have completed all of the requirements to have his or her full driving privileges restored, but still be required to have an ignition interlock device installed to continue driving.

Because the DMV will not restore full driving privileges to someone still required to have an ignition interlock device, drivers in this situation must apply for a Post-Revocation Conditional Driver’s License.

A driver is eligible for a Post-Revocation Conditional Driver’s License under the following circumstances:
(1) He or she was convicted Driving While Intoxicated, Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated, or Driving with a Blood Alcohol Content of .08% or Greater;
(2) The court sentenced the driver to a period of probation or conditional discharge;
(3) The driver was ordered by the court to install and maintain an ignition interlock device;
(4) the minimum period of driver’s license revocation required by law has expired.

A driver issued a Post-Revocation Conditional Driver’s License will generally be subject to the same limitations imposed during the mandatory revocation period when using a Conditional Driver’s License, with driving primarily limited to work, school, medical treatment and other necessities.

Understanding how your driver’s license may be impacted by a DWI arrest requires an experienced lawyer.
