    If you are arrested for a DWI the judge will take your license. Your attorney will make a written or oral request for a hardship license to go to school, work, and for medical reasons. You cannot get one unless there are no bus routes and no subway transportation to get to those locations, but some judges will give it to you even if there are alternative transportation methods as long as it will be more difficult. You are not eligible to drive in any event since you do not have a license.
