Drivers may be eligible in Buffalo ny for a Pre-Conviction Conditional License, or a Post-Conviction Conditional License, so long as they are eligible to participate in the Drinker Driver Program (DDP). Pre-Conviction Conditional Licenses are for those drivers that have been suspended pending prosecution and no hardship license has been granted. This is issued 30 days after arraignment. Post-Conviction Conditional Licenses are for those drivers that have been suspended or revoked after being convicted for DWAI or DWI (if you are not convicted, and you had refused the breath test, you are not eligible for a conditional license for the year that the DMV revoked your license for refusing). A driver is NOT eligible for the Drinker Driver Program if they took the program within the last five (5) years, or was offered the program in the last five (5) years and did not participate. The Conditional License is a limited use license. A conditional license is not valid for driving a vehicle that requires a Commercial Driver License (CDL), even if the driver possesses a Certificate of Relief from Civil Disabilities.
