ADMINISTRATIVE LICENSE REVOCATION

After you’re arrested for Driving for While Intoxicated (DWI) but even before your DWI is heard in county court, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) will seek to administratively suspend your right to drive in Texas.

Do you want to stop that automatic suspension?

Then you must request the Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing. But you must make the request within 15 days of your DWI arrest. If you do not make the request then your right to drive will be automatically suspended on the 40th day after your date of arrest. Your suspension will happen even if your criminal case is dismissed. The only way to stop it is to request the hearing.

The suspension of your right to drive can last from 60 days to 2 years.

Mary Beth Harrell and her associates have stopped DPS from suspending the driver’s license of many of her clients.

Too often other lawyers tell their clients, “you can’t win an ALR hearing, so it’s a waste of time to try.”

They’re dead wrong.

We’ve won many ALR hearings for our clients and preserved their right to drive in Texas.

If you’ve been arrested for a DWI, call Mary Beth Harrell today.
