Texas has an implied-consent law, which means that, when a police officer develops a probable cause to make a DWI arrest, a licensed driver is required to submit to a breath, blood or urine blood-alcohol test. If you refuse, your action will result in automatic license suspension. Your driver license can be suspended from 90 days to two years, depending on your criminal record.

A person charged with a DWI has 15 days to request an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing to avoid having their license suspended. If you miss this window, your license gets suspended until your criminal case gets resolved, which could take months.

  • First offense

Up to $2,000 in fines, 72 hours to 6 months in jail, and license suspension of 90 days up to a year.
