In Texas, if you are arrested for Driving While Intoxicated or any other alcohol related driving crime, including BWI, you must face an administrative hearing regarding your drive’rs license. This is separate and distinct from your court case. An Administrative License Revocation (ALR) Hearing, can result in the suspension of your Texas driver’s license. If you a refuse a chemical test, the length of the suspension will be longer than if you voluntarily give a sample. After arrest or notification of arrest, you have 15 days to request a hearing to retain your driver’s license. Even if you lose the ALR Hearing, you may still be eligible for an occupational license.
