What is a restricted use license?

by Seth Azria on 11/05/2013

The New York DMV may issue a restricted use licensed to a driver who qualifies for such a license after a revocation or suspension due to violations not related to alcohol or drugs. The DMV determines if you qualify under the law for the restricted use license and will notify you if you are eligible.

A restricted use license allows driving:

  • to the applicant's employment, business, trade, occupation or profession, or
  • to his travel to and from a class or course at an accredited school, college or university or at a state approved institution of vocational or technical training, or,
  • to and from a medical examination or treatment as part of a necessary medical treatment for such participant or member of his household, as evidenced by a written statement to that effect from a licensed medical practitioner

To be granted a restricted use license the DMV must find that a denial of such license or privilege would deprive the person of his usual means of livelihood and thereby constitute an unwarranted and substantial financial hardship on the applicant and his immediate family or would seriously impair such person's ability to meet the requirements of his education.

You will not qualify for a restricted use license if:

  • you do not have a valid NYS license or a NYS license that can be renewed, or
  • your license was suspended for a period of 30 or fewer days, or
  • a judge suspended your license based on the court’s authority under the law, or
  • you had another restricted license in the last three years, or
  • you have a suspension that you can end through yourself. For example, if your license is suspended because:
  • you failed to respond to a traffic ticket, or
  • you failed to pay a fine, or
  • you failed to file an accident report.

Take it from a Fellow Attorney, Seth Azria is wonderful and gets the job done.

I am an attorney working in the lower Hudson Valley. I had an unfortunate brush with the law on my birthday of all days! which resulted in my receipt of a speeding ticket en-route to a wedding in Buffalo. I'd never had any other infractions on my record and this offense is certainly not an area in which I specialize. I was very upset and worried but immediately upon calling Mr. Azria all of my fears and concerns melted away. Mr. Azria was able to plead my ticket down to a minor violation with no points and a small fee to the Court. Mr. Azria was quick, efficient and responsive. I never had a moment of worry that my case was being neglected. Mr. Azria and his team answered any questions that I had and kept me informed throughout the process. I could not have asked for a better team in my corner and you can't beat the price. You would have thought that I spent a small fortune for the quality of service that I received. Take it from me, Mr. Azria is the attorney you want representing you.

Schuyler speeding ticket

It's been quite a few months, maybe a year since Seth got my speeding ticket reduced to a non moving violation. After speaking with several attorneys I went with Seth because he was exactly as described in his reviews. He was reachable, returned my calls, answered all my questions (which there were many). After a few weeks he and his staff got back to me with a positive outcome. It cost some money in fees and fines but a few months later my insurance had dropped $800. Wow....I was happy I didn't get a speeding ticket or points taken away so that my insurance wouldn't go up. This was a super bonus! 
Thanks Seth!

I highly recommend them, they are the best.

I was very satisfied having them represent me on a speeding ticket. The process was seamless and very convenient. I highly recommend them and will not consider anyone else to represent me if I should ever land in any sticky situations again. They fight tirelessly for you and make it easy for you. I'm from out of state so I didn't have to travel or lift a finger to get it taken care of. They are great.

Azria & Bruffett provided excellent representation for my 89-year old father who was charged with two tickets in Cortland, NY. For a very affordable fee, they were able to obtain dismissal of the moving violation resulting in a very small fine and court costs. I live in another state so this was especially convenient for me to help my dad and they saved me a lot of time. We spoke with an attorney and a paralegal guided my dad and I through the remainder of the process. The firm responded to all of my questions promptly. Highly recommended.
