SR22 insurance is a liability insurance that several states require of DWAI / DWI / DUI offenders. New York is not one of these states.

There is no SR22 requirement in New York.

However, if you get a DWAI / DWI in New York and you then move to another state, your new state may require you to buy SR22 insurance based on your New York conviction. 

How to Get Your New York Driver’s License Back

If your driver’s license has been suspended for drunk driving, you will need to serve the suspension period, and then pay a suspension termination fee. You do not need to apply for a new license – your original license will simply be restored.

If you have two or more alcohol related convictions within the last three years, then you will need to provide acceptable proof of rehabilitation. This is done by the DMV Form DS-449, which must be completed by a treatment or prevention provider who has been approved by the OASAS.

If your driver’s license has been revoked, then in order to have it restored, you must get approval from the DMV Driver Improvement Unit (DIU). There is a $100 re-application fee. Once you get approval, then you can apply to the DMV for a new driver’s license. You can begin this process using the online Request for Restoration after Revocation.

New York Ignition Interlock Law

In New York, if you are sentenced for DWI, you will be subject to a period of probation, during which you must have an ignition interlock device (IID) installed in any vehicle that you own or operate and have an “ignition interlock” restriction added to your license.

You will be restricted to interlock driving for at least 6 months.

The driver is responsible for all fees associated with the IID. Fees may vary slightly, but in general, it costs about $100 for installation and $100 for removal. There is also a monthly service fee of about $100.
