There is no question that a suspended license can prove to be a major obstacle in a person's life. Not only will they have to attempt to apply for a restricted or conditional license, they will also have to adjust their schedules (i.e. driving to work, school, etc.) and face increased insurance premiums.
As you already know, your driver's license will be suspended or revoked unless you meet certain requirements here in the state of New York. For example, when the time comes to renew your driver's license, you are more than likely accustomed to traveling to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) - and perhaps standing in line for quite some time - in order to take a mandatory vision test.
