SAVING YOUR ABILITY TO DRIVE
If you get arrested for a DWI or a DUI in Tarrant County, then you are likely facing a driver’s license suspension that will have an adverse effect on your daily life. The two most common lengths of driver’s license suspensions are:
- 90 days if you provided a breath or blood test that was above the legal limit (0.08), or
- 180 days if you refused to provide a sample of your breath or blood.
If your license is suspended for a DWI after being read the DIC-24 statutory warning by a law enforcement official, then your license suspension will likely begin 40 days from the date of your arrest.
The law allows for individuals facing a driver’s license suspension the ability to appeal the suspension by requesting an ALR Hearing through the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH).
15 DAYS TO REQUEST A HEARING
You have 15 days from the date of arrest to request an ALR Hearing, otherwise your license will be suspended 40 days from the date of arrest. If you request a hearing, then the suspension will be on hold until the hearing is conducted and the Judge makes a ruling.
OCCUPATIONAL DRIVER’S LICENSE
In the event that an ALR Hearing was not requested within 15 days of your DWI arrest, or if the ALR Hearing judge upholds your driver’s license suspension, then our firm can assist in getting you an occupational driver’s license, which will allow you to still drive to and from work while your license is suspended.
