You should not plead guilty while you have the permit. The combo is not sufficient to allow you to drive. It is a no point ticket but it would look bad when you apply for an actual license.

I am a criminal defense attorney practicing in Nassau, Suffolk and New York City. The above information is not a substitution for a meeting whereas all potential legal issues can be discussed.
We handle cases in NY City. Everything goes to trial in NYC, and if you have a learner's permit most moving violations cause a suspension under the vehicle and traffic law. You need to find an attorney like our office that handles NYC traffic ticket trials ASAP - we will go to court for you and utilize e-mail to communicate so you never have to come to our office or court. Please be advised that my response is not a solicitation, as there are many law firms that practice NYC traffic ticket defense so you can call anyone you'd like.
