The New York Department of Motor Vehicles explains circumstances under which your license to drive may be suspended. There are different suspension or revocation lengths listed by the DMV, with the length of your suspension depending upon the specific offense with which you are convicted.
For example, you could have your license suspended for 90 days if you are convicted of Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI). If you are caught driving under the influence of alcohol outside of New York State, you could face a 90 day revocation of your license.
A 90 day suspension is one of the shortest suspensions of your license that could result from conviction for a driving related offenses. For example, if you are convicted of driving while intoxicated with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher, your license will typically be revoked for a six month period. If you are convicted of driving while ability impaired by a drug (as opposed to driving while ability impaired by alcohol), you face a six month suspension. A repeat drunk driving offender who is convicted of a second offense would face a one year revocation.
While a 90-day suspension is relatively short compared with other offenses, not being allowed to drive for a 90 day period of time can be a big hindrance on your life. You may need to drive to fulfill your work obligations or your family obligations but you will be unable to do so if you have a suspended license unless you get a hardship exemption. If you try to drive while your license has been suspended, you will face much more serious legal consequences so you cannot afford to take this risk.
