What You Need to Know About Administrative License Revocation (ALR)
Failure to comply with a field sobriety test, blood alcohol concentration test, or breath test can lead to automatic suspension of your license. The Texas Department of Public Safety reports that if you comply with the field sobriety test and fail, your license is automatically suspended.
A criminal defense lawyer from our firm can help determine whether your case qualifies for a DMV hearing. The road to the reinstatement of your license is often challenging due to the seriousness of a DWI or BWI charge.
The suspension of your license is an inconvenience that can prevent you from working, seeking medical treatments, or other important tasks. In some cases, the suspension of your license may have violated your rights or occurred under questionable circumstances. No matter what resulted in the loss of your driving privileges, let our team review your case for free.
What You Need to Know About the DMV Hearing Process
The suspension of your license is a civil administrative process. To contest the suspension, you must file a request for a DMV hearing within 15 days of being served notice.
The State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH)—under the guidance of an Administrative Law Judge—listens to both sides of the issue in order to make a determination regarding the suspension.
If the judge sides with the Texas Department of Public Safety regarding the suspension of your license, the order stands. If the judge determines that the department has not made its case, your license will not be suspended.
You have the right to appeal a ruling if the judge rules against you. Preparing your case takes time.
Once you file a request for a DMV hearing, it may take up to 180 days for SOAH to schedule your hearing. This may seem like a long time; however, it can pass quickly.

How a Denton DMV Hearing Lawyer Can Help You
A Texas driver’s license is a privilege and not a right. The state takes drunk or impaired driving or boating very seriously. If you feel your license suspension is unfair due to officer misconduct or a violation of your rights, we can help you.
Texas implied consent laws make the DMV hearing process quite complex. A number of factors regarding your arrest can affect your case, including:
- Whether you refused or failed a field sobriety test
- Whether you refused a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) or breath test
- Whether this was your first offense or a subsequent offense
- Whether the law enforcement officer overstepped their power during your arrest
