Will My License Be Suspended After a DWI Arrest?
If you were charged with DWI in Texas, realize that you face both criminal and civil penalties. Your driver's license could be suspended or revoked. A criminal prosecution will result from the criminal charge itself and an administration license suspension will result from the person's refusal to submit to, or failure of, the breath test requested in accordance with Texas "implied consent" laws.
Act Quickly to Protect Your License
Remember: You have just 15 days from the date of your arrest to ask for an administrative license revocation (ALR) hearing. These hearings allow drivers to fight for their licenses after being stopped for an intoxication offense or for refusing a breath or blood test. If you do not request an ALR hearing, your license will automatically be suspended. Speak with our DWI lawyer now about your case. The sooner you act, the better. In addition, requesting your ALR hearing can have a positive impact on your criminal case. Contact JM Davis Law PLLC to learn more.
How Long Will My License Be Suspended?
Your license can be suspended anywhere from 90 days to two years, depending on:
- Whether the suspension resulted from a breath / blood test failure
- Whether the suspension resulted from a breath / blood test refusal
- The number of prior drug or alcohol related contacts you have
