DWI: Drivers License Suspension

Updated: Feb 19, 2023 @ 1:14 am

In Texas, if you’re charged with a DWI & DUI related crime, or arrested and found to have illegal drugs in your possession while operating a motor vehicle, your Texas Drivers License will be suspended.

This is in addition to any other criminal penalties you’re forced to endure should you be found guilty of the originated offense. The process of automatic driver license suspension is referred to as Administrative License Revocation or “ALR” for short.

Administrative License Revocation

Automatic Texas Driver License Suspension

The process of executing the suspension of your Texas Drivers License, Administrative License Revocation, begins immediately after you’re charged with DWI or DUI in Texas. Thus, making the need for immediate legal representation paramount especially if you need lawful driving privileges to maintain your employment.

We provide legal representation for ALR Hearings, but you’ve got to move fast!

We’ll Need to Request an ALR Hearing

If you’re arrested for DUI or DWI, or refuse sobriety testing, or fail sobriety, blood or breath testing, the Texas Department of Public Safety will have your Texas Drivers License suspended. However, we can contest this suspension by requesting an ALR hearing in which we can argue a defense that will allow you to keep your Texas Driver License.

The good news about ALR hearings is that if we win the ALR hearing, there’s a strong chance we’ll win in your DWI case at trial or get it dismissed. The bad news about ALR is the state automatically suspends your Texas Driver License so you’ll need to hire an attorney immediately to fight this “civil” judgement.

We’ll fight to ensure that you can lawfully drive in Texas in lieu of your upcoming court appearance for the originating DWI or DUI charge.

Driving is a Crime in Texas

If you don’t take some action to protect your “driving privileges,” and you’re stopped by law enforcement for any reason, it could mean additional criminal charges.

If your Texas Driver License is invalid or suspended and you’re subjected to a routine traffic stop, it’s a new criminal charge. You’ll have a new misdemeanor criminal case for DWLI (Driving While License Invalid) or DWLS (Driving While License Suspended). Although these are minor traffic offenses, the are crimes and will make matters worse for your situation.
