As an experienced Getzville DWI Lawyer, I am often asked the differences between a restricted license and a conditional license. When you’re convicted of driving while intoxicated or driving while impaired, your license may be suspended or revoked for a period of time. This means that your full driving privileges are no longer in effect. However, if you are eligible, under most circumstances, you will be able to get a restricted or conditional license. What this means is that if you attend a program called the DDP program that DMV offers, they will issue you a new license that says Restricted on it or a conditional license that allows you to drive to and from work, to and from school, to and from medical appointments, and so many hours a week to conduct personal errands.
Typically, DMV will ask you to pick a day, let’s say Wednesday, and you’ll be able to drive three hours a day on Wednesday to run all your personal errands. This conditional license does not allow you to go to bars, to go to restaurants late at night, to go to friends’ homes, or you’ll be committing a new infraction which may result in the revocation or suspension of your license again.
