DRIVER LICENSE SUSPENSION - Your arrest may have included a cancellation of your
Texas driving privileges for a specific period of time. YOU HAVE ONLY 15 DAYS FROM THE DATE OF YOUR ARREST TO REQUEST A HEARING ON THIS MATTER. I believe that this hearing is extremely important, not only to challenge your suspension but also as an opportunity for your attorney to question the arresting officer to find out exactly what he is going to say in court. If you retain our office to represent you, part of that representation includes representing you at the
driver license suspension. However, remember you must request this hearing no later than 15 days from your arrest so it is important that you contact me as soon as possible to schedule an appointment. If your
Texas driving privileges are ultimately suspended, in most cases we can get you a
Texas license that will allow you to drive to and from work.
WARNING BEWARE: TEXAS DRIVER LICENSE SURCHARGE!!
Beginning with any
Texas DWI Conviction for an offense committed on or after 09/01/03, the
Texas Department Of Public Safety is authorized to charge a surcharge on your Driver's License.
This charge will range from $1,000.00 to $2,000.00 a year for three years. Depending on whether you provided a breath sample, and the results, you could be facing a $6,000.00 fee to keep your license.
