Saved a client from a permanent license revocation due multiple NY DMV DWI convictions rules

Under special rules created in 2012, section 15 NYCRR 136.5 prohibits re-licensing after a 3rd DWI, or more accurately an alcohol or drug related driving conviction or incident. In this client’s case, what would have caused a permanent license revocation had nothing to do with a current DWI conviction – his last DWI conviction was over 20 years ago. Rather, what triggered the lifetime revocation was a recent cell phone conviction which, due to the totality of his driving history, triggered a license revocation which, in his case, would have been permanent. Watch this video to the end to see how I, thinking out of the box, prevented the revocation.
