A conditional license allows you to drive:
1. To and from work;
2. To and from the Drinking Driver Program and any related alcohol/drug treatment;
3. To and from school;
4. To and from probation;
5. To and from DMV;
6. To and from medical treatment;
7. To and from your child’s school or day care provider; and
8. For one 3-hour time period per week to run errands.
To be eligible for a conditional license, you must be eligible for, and participate in, the Drinking Driver Program (“DDP”). However, there are numerous conditional license disqualifications. To find out if you are eligible for a conditional license, you should consult with a knowledgeable DWI attorney (or with DMV).
If you obtain a conditional license, you can use it until you are eligible for the return of your full driver’s license. However, if you are convicted of a moving violation (e.g., speeding, no seatbelt, etc.) while on a conditional license, the conditional license will be revoked by DMV.
If you are convicted of DWAI Drugs, you are not eligible for a conditional license. However, you may be eligible for a restricted use license. A restricted use license is very similar to a conditional license, as are the eligibility requirements.
