What does a Texas DWI/DUI charge involve?

When arrested for Drunk Driving in Texas you are faced with two different proceedings. The first is a criminal case, and this will affect your arrest and criminal record. Your second case is a matter of civil court, which can affect your  driving privileges in the State of Texas.

You only have 15 days to save your license, so please call now! Time is not on your side.

With a DWI/DUI comes serious consequences in Texas. Along with facing possible criminal convictions, whether a Misdemeanor or Felony, you also stand to lose your Texas Driver’s license, see an increase in your auto insurance, pay large fines, Texas surcharges, court costs, jail time and more.

From the date of arrest for DWI/DUI you only have 15 days to request a driver’s license hearing to challenge the suspension of your Texas driver’s license. No matter if you took the states blood alcohol test or refused to take a breath test, blood test, or urine test, the Texas Department of Public Safety will suspend your driver’s license unless you take action and timely request an administrative license revocation hearing (ALR). You only have 15 days.
