ALR Hearings Lawyer in Denton County
Denton County DWI Attorney
In the state of Texas it is illegal to drink and drive. If a driver chooses
to do so, they could face serious penalties, one of which is the loss
of their licenses. In fact, individuals who are tested and show a blood
alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.08% can expect to have their licenses
suspended. If a driver refuses a blood or breath test, then an Administrative
License Revocation (ALR) hearing will occur.
Why Are You Required to Submit to Chemical Testing?
If you’ve obtained a driver's license in the state of Texas,
you have automatically provided your consent to submit to a chemical test
if there is reasonable suspicion that you have been
driving while intoxicated (DWI). This rule is called
implied consent. Nonetheless, this isn’t a clear-cut matter (e.i. what qualifies
as “reasonable suspicion”?), and if you need assistance at
your ALR hearing, speak with our Denton County DWI attorney at once.
You Only Have 15 Days to Act!
If you have refused to consent to a chemical test, your license can be
suspended for between 90 days and 2 years. At the time of your refusal,
you will be issued a temporary driving permit as the officer takes your
driver's license. From that time, you will have 15 days to request
an ALR hearing with the DMV. If you do not meet this deadline, your request
will be denied. If you fail to request a hearing within the deadline period,
your license suspension will occur 40 days after the arrest. If the request
is approved, you will be required to pay a $125 fee.
