Provisional License Lawyer in New York
All Traffic Violations Are Serious for Provisional Drivers
Driving is a privilege, and it can be taken away at any time. Those driving under a provisional license could have their license suspended more easily, so protecting those rights is crucial. At Martin A. Kron & Associates, P.C., we have helped drivers charged with traffic violations in New York and New Jersey since 1986. The rules, restrictions, and consequences vary greatly from one jurisdiction to the other, including from one county to another. Let our New York traffic ticket lawyer help you protect your driving privileges.
Provisional Licenses & Their Restrictions
While the rules may vary between jurisdictions, one thing always stays the same: when you have a provisional license, the court system treats each violation seriously. In many cases, it will not accept a plea to a no-point violation.
Below are some basic guidelines for provisional licenses:
- In New York: Until age 18, a driver is considered probationary. Specific restrictions depend on whether the child drives in Upstate, in New York City, or on Long Island. For example, drivers under the age of 17 or those who did not complete the state-approved course cannot drive in the five boroughs. Any violation can result in a 60-day license suspension.
- In New Jersey: A driver is considered probationary for the first two years after he or she receives a driver's license permit, and must have a valid decal on his or her car. A driver with two infractions totaling four or more points is required to complete the Probationary Driver Program. Failure to complete or conviction for another violation typically results in license suspension.
If your child is a provisional driver and has received a traffic violation, we encourage you to contact a lawyer at our office to learn more about your options and the ways to protect your child's driving record.
