Can You Get Your Driver’s License Back After a Suspension?
Kingwood and Humble—Harris County and Montgomery County
The state of Texas can suspend your driver’s license for many reasons. Some of the most common include a DWI arrest, failing or refusing to submit to a breath test during a traffic stop, failure to pay child support, and a conviction for drug possession. If your license has been suspended for any reason, you may be able to apply for an occupational driver’s license, which will allow you to get back and forth to work
To preserve your right to challenge your driver’s license suspension after a DWI arrest, you must request an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing within 15 calendar days of receiving the Notice of Suspension. This is usually the date of your arrest.
