Suspended License

License Suspension in Texas

Let Our College Station DWI Attorney Help You

In addition to potential jail time and expensive fines for being convicted of a DWI, you may run the risk of having your license suspended. Without your driving privileges, it can be difficult to commute to work or conduct your normal daily activities.

At The Law Office of Shane Phelps, P.C., we can guide you through every step of the legal process to get your license back as soon as possible. Our College Station DWI attorneys have decades of experience in helping our clients protect their rights, reputations, and freedom.

How Long Will My License Be Suspended for a DWI?

Whether you failed BAC testing or refused to participate in a test, you have only 15 days to request a DMV hearing in Texas to contest the administrative suspension of your driving privileges. If you fail to do so, you will automatically lose your license once 40 days have passed since your DWI arrest. You must understand that the administrative hearing is a separate action from the criminal case.

The following are the suspension periods depending on the number of DWI offenses:

  • First DWI Offense – License suspension between 90 days and 365 days
  • Second of Subsequent DWI Offense – License suspension between 180 days and two years

If you are arrested for driving with a suspended license for a DWI, it is considered a Class B misdemeanor. A Class B misdemeanor is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of 180 days and a fine of up to $2,000.
