Out-of-State Drivers Charged With DWI in New York

A driver from out of state has a driving privilege in New York state by virtue of the existence of his or her out-of-state license. When you are convicted of DWI in New York, it is this driving privilege that is affected.

There are also collateral consequences that result from a DWI conviction in New York state. For example, New Jersey and Connecticut will impose their own sanctions on their licensed motorist. In effect, you will have to pay for your DWI twice, first in New York and second in your home state.
