New York Driver's License Suspensions

Under New York state laws, all licensed drivers have given their default consent to a chemical test. Refusal to take a chemical test will result in an automatic driver's license suspension for over a year. If you were charged with DWI, the New York Department of Motor Vehicles may also suspend your driver's license.

Examples of mandatory driver's license suspensions and revocations include:

  • DWI 1 st offense: 6 months of revocation
  • DWAI 1 st offense: 90-day suspension
  • Aggravated DWI 1 st offense: 1 year of revocation

Repeat offenders may face harsher penalties and longer suspension durations.
