Driver’s License Revocation
Your driver’s license is your symbol that you have undergone driver’s education and are legally allowed to drive. However, when you make driving mistakes, the state can revoke your driver’s license as both a way to keep you off the roads as well as a punishment you for your bad decision.
In some cases, your driver’s license can be automatically revoked. Other times, the court will suspend your license to prevent you from driving. If your license has been wrongly suspended or revoked, you should talk to a lawyer about your legal options. To discuss your case, contact a Dallas DWI/DUI attorney from the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter today at 214-845-7007.
Administrative License Revocation
Texas has an administrative license revocation law, or ALR, which means that people who receive their driver’s licenses automatically agree to consent to things like blood tests or Breathalyzer tests if they are pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving. However, if you refuse the test, your license can be automatically suspended.
Reasons for License Suspension
Other reasons for driver’s license suspension include:
- Alcohol offense by a minor
- Multiple traffic offenses
- Drug crime charges
- Out-of-state crimes such as failure to pay a ticket
For most crimes, the length of the suspension depends on the severity of the crime or how many offenses you have committed in the past. Additionally, if you are caught driving without a valid license, you can have your suspension extended or face other consequences.
Without a driver’s license, you may be unable to get to and from work as well as run other important errands. This can be a huge inconvenience. If you have had your license wrongly revoked, you should contact a Dallas DWI/DUI lawyer from the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter at 214-845-7007 today.
