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.

Mr. Habib and his staff helped me handle a speeding ticket. I don't live in the area, but I didn't even have to come back to take care of things, Mr. Habib took care of it for me, at a fair cost. I am thrilled with the outcome, and I recommend highly Mr. Habib and his firm for any traffic tickets/other matters in NY. Thanks so much!

Seth Azria and his team are great. He helped me reduce my 6 points speeding ticket to a no points, loud muffler violation. I highly recommend him.

Clear Communications and Results

I contacted Azria & Bruffett to handle my traffic ticket after an accident in upstate New York. I found them via a random Google search and appreciated the clarity of the information presented on their website and in initial communications. Throughout the entire process they were extremely clear and helpful. My case got a little complicated for random reasons, and they went beyond their initial scope to pursue the case on my behalf. I really appreciate their work.

This gentleman works wonders

Due to my reckless decision making I was charged with an aggravated DWI. This could have ended badly for me and left me devastated financially. I hired Mr Habib and he immediately set up a plan of action for my case. Throughout the process he kept me well informed and detailed exactly what he was trying to achieve in my case. This man worked a miracle. Not only did he get the charge dropped down to a DWAI (a traffic infraction) he also mitigated the financial impact this incident would have had on me by thousands of dollars. I can't thank Mr. Habib enough. If you want a second chance this is the man to call hands down. He even went above and beyond to write a letter to my employer to further explain this unfortunate incident. Thanks again, sir.
