New DWI/DUI Offenses

 New Regulations Concerning DWI/DUI Offenses

 

            As of now, all people that require a substance abuse screening or assessment are required to submit to a drug test, consent to having the evaluator look at their DMV Driving Abstract, arrest information as well as allow the evaluator to contact a significant other who will be questioned regarding the arrest. 

          Starting in 2012, the NYS DMV and OASES worked together in creating a data base called Impaired Driver System (IDS).  This will eliminate the former paper submission of DS-449 to the DMV.  The DS-449 forms were needed for those looking to restore their driving license.
