How Can You Get Your Driver's License Back?

In the aftermath of a DWI arrest in San Antonio, TX, it is imperative that you act quickly. The police officer who pulled you over and arrested you for driving while intoxicated has the right to confiscate your license at the scene. Law enforcement will then notify the Department of Public Safety of your charges, but you have the ability to contest your charges and license suspension.

15 Days to Save Your License

You have only 15 days to save your license from being suspended. You must schedule an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing during this two week period. At this hearing, you will have the chance to fight for your driving privileges and potentially have your license reinstated. If you do not attend an ALR hearing, your license could be automatically suspended for 1-2 years, depending on your charges and any previous convictions.

Retaining an Aggressive DWI Defense Attorney Can Help

Since the ALR hearing can be the determining factor in whether or not you get to keep your license, it is highly advised that you hire an aggressive San Antonio license restoration attorney to protect your rights during this process. While you are allowed to drive with a temporary license for 40 days after your arrest, once that time is up it will be suspended if you do not get it reinstated at the hearing.

How I Can Help You

I could challenge the suspension of your license early in the process, by representing you at a hearing soon after your arrest. If your license has already been suspended, then I can help you file the necessary paperwork and reinstatement fee in order to get your license restored, and get you back behind the wheel legally.

Some are eligible to get an occupational driver's license. This allows the individual to drive for work, school, or to get groceries and other household duties. I can advise you if you are eligible for this license, based upon exactly what occurred in your DWI case.

Take action now. You only have 15 days.

Contact a DWI attorney in San Antonio from my firm to help you to take action to restore your driver's license. I could request an ALR (Administrative License Revocation) hearing within the 15 day period allotted after a DWI arrest. In this hearing, I could challenge the evidence that led to your arrest, and halt the suspension of your license. It may be necessary to schedule a hearing to get your license restored if it has been suspended. You deserve to have a San Antonio license restoration lawyer on your side that has experience in driver's license restoration and can schedule and represent you at an ALR hearing, and who will take action to get your driver's license restored to you.
