Driver ‘s License Revocation

On January 1, 1995, the Department of Public Safety (DPS) in Texas instituted the Administrative License Revocation (ALR) program to suspend and revoke the driver ‘s licenses of individuals charged with driving under the influence. Because of the program, individuals under suspicion of DWI must not only deal with the charges placed upon them, but must also fight to regain their right to operate a motor vehicle.

DWI charges and the auxiliary effects can seriously inconvenience an individual ‘s daily life. Without a drivers ‘ license, individuals often have to find alternative ways to get to work, school, and other destinations. If your license has been revoked due to DWI charges, contact Dallas DWI attorney Mark T. Lassiter at (214) 845-7007.

License Revocation

The ALR program allows for license revocation in the event of:

  • A traffic stop during which an individual is determined by field sobriety tests and fluid samples to be under the influence of alcohol and / or drugs.
  • If an individual suspected of DWI refuses to submit to testing, he or she may be served with a Notice of Suspension and will have their license immediately revoked.
  • A minor found to be driving under the influence of alcohol may be charged with DUI and his or her driver ‘s license may be confiscated and revoked.
  • Drivers ‘ licenses may also be revoked after ALR hearings in the county of arrest to determine whether or not the license should be revoked.
