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.

Client Reviews of Our Traffic Lawyers

Extremely satisfied

I have hired the Azria law firm twice to represent my daughter, once for speeding and the other was an accident. Both times I was extremely pleased with the outcome, in both cases they were dropped to no pointers. Everything was handled through e-mail, which was very convenient and in both cases were taken care of from start to finish within a month. I would recomend them to anyone. Thank you again for all of your help.

I have retained Mr. Azria on several occasions for traffic violations and each one turned out in my favor 100%. This is the lawyer to hire when involved in any traffic incidents. I have recommended him to many friends and all have had great results. You people have to try this law firm out, you won't be disappointed. Mr. Azria is the true "heavy hitter" here in Syracuse. Thank you so much Mr. Azria, you saved my commercial license from any points, and your fee was more than reasonable.

Very Professional and Trustworthy!

I contacted Azria Law Office after receiving a speed ticket (+24 mph). Pleading guilty would automatically assign me 6 points + fines to the court, and fines to DMV for 3 years. In addition, my insurance premium would increase. Azria Law Office handled my case in a very professional manner. The charges for the law office is also reasonable. Afterwards my case was converted to no point and a fine below $150. I am much relieved now!

Thank you Seth Azria for getting my traffic ticket dismissed. It was an out of state ticket and I was worried about the consequences. Attorney Azria was very courteous and he allayed all my concerns. He promised me to try his best to reduce the number of points. However, he was able to get the ticket dismissed. Its a classic case of under promise and over deliver.
