Driver License Revoked in NY

I received a permanent revocation in NYS for previous dwi convictions. I upheld my end of the sentence and now NY has new regulations in place that won’t approve me for relicenceing. I have heard Colorado will issue me a license if I relocate. Is this true?

Yes, there is a path to a Colorado license.

Is the reinstatement process, including the interlock device, the same if my DUI is for something other than alcohol (marijuana or prescription medication)

Yes, the reinstatement process is the same and may require an interlock for any type of DUI, not just alcohol.

Will I get a letter from DMV revoking my license?

No, you should not. Your BAC was only .043. The officer is only allowed to start the revocation process at .08.

I have completed the mandatory chemical evaluation and treatment recommended/required by the courts in MN. Since I will have already served my 3 year cancellation period by December, would CO require the same challenges to me as MN or would the process be the same living in CO vs in MN? I am trying to make things as easy, inexpensive, and least time consuming possible to get everything back to normal.

Colorado would require a 2-year interlock and the license would be restricted to driving interlock-enabled vehicles only.  Any documented use of alcohol while driving would cause a problem obviously with the license.  It’s an advantage to have completed treatment.  Colorado law would not mandate the same challenges as Minnesota.  This is about as inexpensive and expedited a process as you will find anywhere.

My felony offenses was in December 2013 and conviction was before the enactment of felony DUI in Colorado. My previous DUIs were in 2007. I completed outpatient treatment at facility that also offered sober living where I stayed for three months. I do not have any AA documentation or other proof of rehabilitation though I am set to complete probation in August and have been accepted to graduate school in Denver. I am curious as to whether I would be eligible for a license and whether it would require interlock.

Your felonies aren’t applicable in Colorado.   Not having treatment documentation may necessitate taking alcohol classes.  You are definitely eligible for a license hearing.  A license would require at least a 2-year interlock

The FAQs are pretty general. I have 6 (state says seven but counted one twice) alcohol related incidents. Never an accident. I have been to rehab, jail and 5 years probation. New York will still not give me a license even though I’m sober almost seven years. Considering a move to Colorado. Would I be able to get a license there?

The number of alcohol-related incidents isn’t relevant.  Having been in rehab is a positive.  Unlike New York, Colorado doesn’t have a provision for a lifetime revocation.

I have a Colorado state ID that I obtained this month but I have lived in CO since December of last year. Is it possible to start preparing for this before the year has elapsed from last driving offense?

Yes, you should prepare as much in advance as possible to be ready to schedule a hearing at the year anniversary of your revocation.

My license was suspended for a traffic ticket not paid. Colorado issued me a license in December 2015 , but cancelled it in February 2016. Would I be able to get a Colorado license?

You must pay your ticket before a license can be issued.
