If you are not convicted, you will be eligible for apply for a driver's license. That is why it is important for you to get a lawyer. If you receive a Deferred Probation and complete it successfully, the case will be dismissed, meaning you are not convicted. There are other options that could be available to avoid being convicted. That is why it is important to shop around and retain a criminal defense attorney to guide you through the process.
You can get your license as long as you have not been convicted in the case. If the case is still pending, if you were placed on deferred probation, or if you are in a pretrial diversion program, you are eligible to get your license.
