Were you recently arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Texas? If so, it is important to understand that you only have two weeks to save your driver's license. Since drunk driving is a danger to the public's safety, the officer who issues your arrest would have the right to confiscate your license and notify the Department of Public Safety about the charges; however, you have the right to contest the suspension of your license. By scheduling an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing within 15 days of your arrest, you will have the chance to fight for the reinstatement of your driving privileges. If you fail to do so, the suspension will automatically go into effect—which may last for 1 to 2 years, depending on the number of DWI convictions that you have on your criminal record.
For this reason, timely action is crucial; however, there is no need to face this complicated legal process alone. With the help of a Fort Worth criminal attorney from The Law Office of Samuel R. Terry, P.C., you can ensure that an Administrative License Revocation hearing is scheduled before time runs out on your case.
