Keeping Your License after a DWI
Receiving a DWI in Texas can result in a wide range of different penalties, including license suspension. In fact, if an individual receives multiple DWI convictions, they may see their license suspended for up to two years at a time. However, there are steps that those accused of DWI can take to help protect their licenses.
Keeping your license after a DWI in Texas can be a challenge, but it is not impossible. In fact, by pursuing an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing, you can contest the rationale for the DWI stop by arguing that the officer did not have probable cause to perform the stop. If successful, you are likely to be able to keep your license, regardless of whether this is your first DWI offense or you have prior DWI convictions on your record.
Representing yourself in an ALR hearing following a DWI citation can be difficult, however. That’s why many who have been charged with DWI and want to fight to keep their license choose to pursue the representation of a qualified legal professional.
