ALR Hearings in Plano, TX

Administrative License Revocation Hearings

In the state of Texas, the Administrative License Revocation (ALR) Program is a process that is initiated whenever someone refuses to take or fails a blood or breath sobriety test.

  • Adult drivers: a failed test registers a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of .08 or greater.
  • Commercial drivers: a failed test results from a BAC level of .04 or greater.
  • Drivers under the age of 21: will fail their sobriety test if any alcohol is detected in their system.
Time may be running out for your DWI.

After you fail or refuse a sobriety test, the administering officer will confiscate the driver's license and issue you a temporary driving permit. At this point, you only have 15 days from the issued date to request a formal hearing to appeal your driver's license suspension. If the suspension is not successfully appealed, a first-time offense will result in a 90-day suspension for failed sobriety tests and a 180-day suspension for refused sobriety tests. For a second offense, the period of suspension increases to one year and two years, respectively.
