    Are they the same? In UPS's eyes? I'm Trying to drive soon but I got a DWAI in 2013. No suspensions or revocation on my license. So I'm not sure.

    Call your local and talk to your business agent.

    The primary difference between the charge of DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) and DWAI (Driving While Ability Impaired) is that DWI is a criminal misdemeanor and while DWAI is a traffic infraction.
    Just found that on a law firm site.

    The primary difference is the BAC count. .08 and above (in NY) is DUI.

    I'm sure UPS considers it the same. 3 years clean, here, I think.
