WARNING TO THOSE CHARGED WITH D.W.I.

You have 15 days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing to contest the suspension of your driver’s license.

The arresting officer should have served you with a “Notice of Suspension” form explaining that your Texas driver’s license can be suspended by the Texas Department of Public Safety unless you request a hearing to contest this suspension within 15 days from the date you receive the Notice of Suspension form.

When you hire an attorney, he/she can request an Administrative License Revocation Hearing for you and the Texas Department of Public Safety then will set a hearing, usually within two to four months of your arrest. You will be able to legally continue driving until this decision is made by the Administrative Law Judge.
