Yes, you can count on New Jersey to report a DWI to New York authorities if you’re driving on a New York license.
It may take some time for the information to make its way to the New York DMV, but if you’re convicted of DWI in New Jersey, New York will eventually notify you that your license has been suspended for 90 days.
If this is your first offense, you can request a conditional driver’s license in order to get to and from work, pick up your kids, and other routine elements.
You will be restricted from driving in New Jersey for the length of the suspension there.
If you believe that your New Jersey DWI is leading to inappropriate consequences in New York, be sure to consult with a Queens DWI attorney who can review your case and contact appropriate authorities on your behalf.
