Texas ALR Driver License Suspension/Hearings - How Does It Work?
When you were arrested for a DWI or DUI, the arresting officers read what is called a DWI Statutory Warning. It is a long, very complicated document and it is very difficult to understand if you are not used to hearing it everyday. It mentions things as to why you've been arrested, your rights, and also mentions submitting to taking a breath or blood test. The warning mentions that if you take a breath or blood test and the results of that test are above the state limit of .08 then you will lose your driver license for 90 days. If you do not agree to take a test then you will lose your license for 180 days.
For most people who have been arrested and charged with a DWI or DUI, they are nervous and this document is very complicated. A large percentage of individuals will ask the arresting officer for advice or more information. The officers are not allowed to give you advice or assistance with this warning. The officers will finish reading the DWI Statutory Warning and then simply ask you - "will you take a breath or blood test." That is all the officer is going to say to the arrested individual. Please know that whether or not you submit to the taking of a breath or blood test, The State of Texas is going to try and suspend your driver's license. State law says that Texas "shall take your license" if you are arrested and charged with Driving While Intoxicated. This is a whole different thing than the actual DWI charge. The criminal charge is going to be filed with the Court where the incident happend. The driver's license hearing is done through The State of Texas via telephone. It is almost like having two different cases...one in the county and one through the state.
Per the DWI Statutory Warning, you only have fifteen (15) days from the date of your arrest to request a driver's license hearing. DO NOT WAIT! Contact us immediately to get started on trying to save your driver's license.
