    To verify your drivers license status in Texas, call the Department of Public Safety (DPS) at 512/424-2600. They are open during normal business hours. Ask to check the "status" of your license. Ask DPS if you are eligible to apply for a restricted (a.k.a. "occupational") drivers license. Based on what you have written, I am not optimistic about your chances, but call DPS to make sure. Good luck.

    There are 15 county criminal courts at law in Harris County (Houston), Texas. Every judge in the Harris County Criminal Courthouse will encourage you to get a lawyer. While a clean record certainly works in your favor, this is not something that you should try and handle yourself. If you cannot afford a lawyer, the court will appoint one for you - free of charge.
