DMV Hearings: Why They Are So Critical

If you have been charged with a DWI then you will face two legal proceedings, one of which is a criminal charge and the other is an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing. You will also be given a Notice of Suspension if you refused to take a breath and blood test or if you failed upon taking the test at the time of arrest.

The ALR hearing is held for the purpose of determining whether or not you will lose your license for a certain period of time. This hearing must be requested within 15 days from your initial arrest or your license will be automatically suspended without further notice. It is vitally important that you have sound legal representation on your side during this hearing as it is often a critical time that could result in a dismissal of the charges if handled correctly.

Common Issues Determined

There may be discrepancies with how the DWI was given out and if the process was in accordance with Texas law. At the ALR hearing, the judge will seek to answer questions to better understand the legitimacy of the case. These questions that must be determined include discovering if there was a reasonable cause in the first place to pull over the driver, if the law officer had good reason to believe the individual was intoxicated and if the driver refused to give a breath or blood specimen when prompted.

When looking at breathalyzer test results, it is also essential to question whether or not the driver was actually in control of the vehicle at the time of the arrest. Having an educated attorney who is well aware of various Texas DWI laws can mean all the difference in keeping your license. Often times, our legal team can use these hearings to dismiss the evidence altogether.

Loss of Freedom and Mobility

Losing a license can have a very serious impact on the rest of your life. You will be unable to drive yourself to work, you will be limited in what you can do in the way of transportation and if your work depends on you having a license then you could be out of a job. If you are a truck driver or if you drive for a living, then you must maintain a clean driving record in order to remain working as a commercial driver. If you were to be convicted of a DWI then you may not be able to find work in the same field. You could also be dealing with CDL charges as well that could affect all aspects of your life, resulting in a significant loss of freedom.
