Q: I got a DWI over the holidays. Will I be able to drive to and from work? I am worried about my job.
A: New York does allow for a restricted license status after being convicted. It will allow you to drive to and from work or to school. It is very limited and you are only eligible for this once. I recommend you speak with a lawyer to learn more.
A: If you refused a breathalyzer then your license is suspended/revoked. If you submitted to a breathalyzer then it is possible that you may be able to drive to work through a conditional license or by hardship. The best person to ask is your current criminal defense attorney.
