Points from a DWI Charge
Do you get points on your license for a DWI charge?
Check out the following educational legal video about receiving points from a DWI charge by Tiffany M. Kopacz, an experienced Hamburg DWI lawyer.
In talking with friends and clients, one of the most commonly asked questions about DWIs (driving while intoxicated charges) is, “How many points do I get on my license for that kind of offense?” The fact is that no points appear against your license. DWI is considered an unclassified misdemeanor under the Vehicle and Traffic Law. While being charged with driving while intoxicated is a crime in the State of New York, its penalties take a form other than points. You will face possible jail time, license suspension penalties, and an enormous amount of fines and fees. There are no points on your license at all.
In New York State, you won’t get points from a DWI charge because it’s not a criminal offense. However, it’s important to contact an experienced Hamburg DWI lawyer as soon as possible to help protect your freedom and minimize your consequences.
