Will You Be Required to Complete an Alcohol Evaluation if Arrested for DWI?

In NY it's mandatory (VTL 1198-a) that anyone arrested for a violation of VTL 1192 (alcohol and drug related driving offenses) complete, at a minimum, an alcohol and substance abuse screening. Whether you will be required to do more than that depends on what category you fall into below.
