You won’t be able to get a New York drivers license if another state has suspended your driving privileges for DUI.
New York, like most states, is a member of the Driver License Compact, which allows states to share information about license suspensions, moving violations, traffic infractions, and other relevant data.
While not all states are members, New York will also check the National Driver Register upon your application for a license.
This is another database where states record information about drivers whose licenses have been suspended or revoked.
If your concern is simply with having government issued ID, you can apply for a Non-Drive Photo ID through the New York Department of Motor Vehicles.
Reinstating a driving license in New York after your prior home state revoked it can be tricky.
