ALR Hearings

LICENSE REVOCATION HEARINGS in TEXAS

ALR HEARINGS:

If your license is suspended, you have a right to an Administrative License Revocation Hearing (ALR). You must request it within 15 days of the date you are notified of the suspension.

For DWI’s, your license is suspended 90 days if you fail a breath/blood test. It is suspended 180 days if you refuse to take the test.

Failure ALR Hearings: When someone fails the test, the hearing covers the following:
(1) If there was reasonable suspicion to pull over the driver, and if there was probable cause to arrest the person; and
(2) If the person actually had 0.08 or greater concentration of alcohol.

Refusal ALR Hearings: For a refusal case, where the person refused the breath/blood test, the hearing covers:
(1) If there was reasonable suspicion to pull over the driver, and if there was probable cause to arrest the person; and
(2) If the officer had probable cause to think the person was driving while intoxicated in a public place; and
(3) if the person was put under arrest and then actually asked to take a breath/blood test; and
(4) did the person actually refuse to take the test.
