Questions regarding a Revoked or Suspended New York Driver’s License
We truly understand that your driver’s license, which allows you to operate a motor vehicle in New York State, is very important. The highest court in our State has recognized that a person’s license cannot be taken without Procedural Due Process. In Pringle v. Wolfe, decided in 1996 the Court of Appeals wrote:
“It is well established that a driver’s license is a substantial property interest that may not be deprived without due process of law. “
If your license has been suspended or revoked, we may be able to help get you back on the road.
We recommend that if a person’s license to drive is either revoked or suspended, the individual obtain a copy of their lifetime driver’s abstract from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Additionally, the person should gather all of their correspondence from DMV regarding their revoked or suspended license and organize this information.
In September of 2012, a new series of regulations were implemented by the Department of Motor Vehicles regarding driver’s licenses. These new regulations have resulted in numerous drivers having their licenses revoked for a period of years especially if the driver has multiple alcohol related convictions.
Because of our extensive experience in this area, individuals seeking advice on how a person can have their revoked license possibly re-instated frequently contact us. Because of the large volume of calls we receive, a consultation fee is required if you would like us to review your lifetime driving record and discuss your options regarding your efforts to get re-licensed. We cannot guarantee a favorable opinion or outcome based on this review.
Please understand that the Department of Motor Vehicles ultimately determines if you will have your driver’s license or privileges to drive in New York State re-instated.
