ALR Hearings

Providing the Defense You Need

ALR Hearing Attorney in Hidalgo County, TX

Let Us Help You Protect Your Rights & Driving Privileges

Once you are arrested for a DWI in Texas, the police will automatically suspend your driver’s license between 90 days and two years. In order to regain your driving privileges, you must request an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing within 15 days of your DWI arrest to contest your license suspension. Going to court alone can be a daunting task, which is why you need an experienced DWI defense attorney to help you get the best possible outcome in your case.

If you are interested in challenging your driver’s license suspension at an ALR hearing, The Law Office of Rene A. Flores, PLLC is ready to help you get back on the road as soon as possible. Our Hidalgo County ALR hearing lawyer understands how difficult life can be without your driving privileges, which is why we can help you figure out your available legal options to ensure you either reinstate your driver’s license or obtain an occupational driver's license to still drive your vehicle on a limited basis.

Call us today at (956) 606-3606 and schedule a free consultation to discuss your case. 

About ALR Hearings in Texas

After requesting an ALR hearing within the 15-day deadline, you will receive a letter from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) that contains the date and time of your scheduled hearing. Your hearing could be held up to 120 days from the date you requested it.

The DPS must prove one of two things in an ALR hearing: (1) you refused to submit to a breath/blood/urine test after your DWI arrest or (2) the test results showed your blood alcohol content (BAC) was at least .08 percent.

For a chemical test refusal, the DPS must prove the following:

  • The officer had reasonable suspicion to pull you over
  • The officer had probable cause to make a DWI arrest
  • The officer made a lawful arrest and requested that you submit to a chemical test
  • You refused testing

For a BAC above the legal limit, the DPS must prove the following:

  • The officer had reasonable suspicion to pull you over
  • The officer had probable cause to make a DWI arrest
  • Your BAC was at .08 percent or more

Both parties have an opportunity to present supporting evidence to the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ), who will determine whether to uphold or revoke the driver’s license suspension. If the ALJ decides in your favor, your license will be reinstated.
