Hello. My name is Alex. Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, under the current law, NY DMV would only suspend or revoke judgment debtor's driver license, if the judgment was issued as a result of the damages that resulted from a motor vehicle accident in which judgment debtor was involved.

I understand that, but a driver license of the person against whom the judgment was issue can only be suspended if the judgment is based on the damages resulting from an auto accident.
I wish you the best of luck!

Here is the NY law that applies.
It states in relevant part:
the claimant's right to initiate actions to recover the unpaid judgment through suspension of debtor's motor vehicle license and registration, if claim is based on defendant's ownership or operation of a motor vehicle;
More to come....
Since your claim is based on a loan default and not directly on the defendant's ownership or operation of a motor vehicle, you may have a hard time getting the suspension. But, you can try. The most detail I could find on how to go about doing this is as follows:
The DMV may suspend the judgment debtor’s driver’s license and car registration until your judgment is paid. Your judgment must be for $1000 or more, and it must be unpaid for more than 15 days. Ask the Small Claims Court Clerk for more information.

Sorry could not be of more help. You may need to visit someone at the clerk's office in person and ask for the forms...
If the clerk does not know then you can ask for a hearing with the judge by filing a motion to enforce the judgment where you ask for relief in the form of a court order issued to the dmv asking for license suspension; but to do this, you may first have to add the dmv as an interested party to the suit.
