DWI & Texas Driver’s Licenses: 6 Things You Should Know

1. If you are arrested for Driving while Intoxicated, your Texas driver’s license will probably be suspended.

2. You have only 15 days from the date your Texas driver’s license is suspended to request an Administrative License Revocation (“ALR”) hearing.

3. The ALR Hearing allows you or your attorney to contest  the suspension of your driver’s license.

4. A Houston Criminal Defense Attorney who specializes in DWI cases can request the ALR hearing for you and also handle your Driving while Intoxicated case at the Harris County Courthouse.

5.  Even if your license remains suspended after the ALR hearing, you may still be eligible to request and receive an Occupational Driver’s License, which would allow you to drive to places like work and church, but with certain restrictions.

If you have been arrested for Driving while Intoxicated and need a defense attorney who is experienced in these types of cases, call the Scheiner Law Group, P.C.
