Montgomery County ALR Hearing Attorney

Saving Your Driving Privileges After a DWI Arrest

An ALR Hearing is held by the Department of Public Safety in regards to the suspension of a driver’s license. ALR stands for Administrative License Revocation, and this hearing will handle a number of key issues in regards to your DWI charge:

  • The officer had probable cause to arrest you for DWI (driving while intoxicated),
  • You were driving the vehicle,
  • You were arrested and were asked to perform a blood or breath test, after having been notified of the consequences of refusing chemical testing, AND
  • You refused the test or failed the test (had a BAC of .08% or greater).

Working with a Montgomery County DWI lawyer is essential in regard to an ALR hearing. The reason for this is that the ruling at the hearing will be based upon a preponderance of evidence. The simplest way to explain this is that it is “more than likely” that an action occurred, rather than a criminal case wherein guilt must be proved beyond a shadow of a doubt.

ALR Hearing Penalties Imposed by the DPS (Department of Public Safety)

The Department of Public Safety may impose a number of different penalties in conjunction with a lost ALR hearing. For instance, a first DWI offense where the driver has a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or greater may result in a license suspension for 90 days. A first DWI offense wherein the driver refused blood alcohol testing altogether may result in a 180-day driver’s license suspension. Don’t take any chances with your driving privileges. Contact our Montgomery County DWI lawyer today for the skilled representation you will need!
