My drivers license was suspended in Texas for 1 year after my DWI conviction. Part of my sentence (and probation) also required me to have an Interlock for 9 months. I chose not to drive for the year, and my suspension is up soon. However, the Tex...
Was this a first DWI ? If it was a first DWI and you did probation, then I am assuming that the license suspension you are referring to is for the administrative license suspension for either refusing to give a sample of your breath or blood, or for giving a sample that was over the legal limit. You said that the court ordered you to have an interlock device installed in your vehicle. Normally, when DPS receives notice of that order, they will send you a letter telling you that your license is canceled unless you send them $10, and they will then mail you a new license, with the restriction that any vehicle you operate must have an interlock device in it. Additionally, when your license is suspended, there is a $125 reinstatement fee that also has to be paid to DPS. If an interlock device is no longer required, you need to get an Order Removing the Interlock Device from the court. Ask your District Clerks Office if they forward that information to DPS. The people you want to talk to at DPS are in the Driver Improvement Section. Go to the Texas DPS website for more information. Hope that helps.See question
I was arrested for a Dwi a year and 11 months ago, there was no breathalyzer and no blood taken, in the sobriety test the officer left the cruiser lights on which effected my eye test for sure, Also you can not here any Audio on the video because ...
Yes, you still have the right to a jury trial. Without knowing any of the facts, or how you looked on video, I cannot possibly tell you what you should do. But if I understand you correctly, if you perform 20 hours of community service - a dismissal is guaranteed. Sometimes a sure thing is better than chance. Happy Thanksgiving.See question
I got a DUI in 2010 while on an internship in Topeka, Kansas, and as a part of the sentence, I was required to have an interlock system installed in my vehicle for 1 year. At the time I had a Texas driver's license, which was never taken away from...
Unfortunately no. If an interlock was required by Kansas, it will be required by Texas under the Interstate Drivers License Compact. In addition, Texas may require a $10 interlock license fee.See question
Im charged with dwli enhanced, but i was driving to protect my sons,can i explain this to the da.
Whatever you do - don't speak to the District Attorney.. Everything you say will be used against you. They are not going to listen to your side of the story and dismiss the case. Defense of a third-party is not a defense to DWI.See question

Do you have any paperwork with the case number on it, and the name of the court in which your case was filed? I would call a clerk in the court where the case was filed, and have them search their records. If that didn't work, I would call the County or District Attorney's office in the county or political sub-division where the case was filed and see if they can help. Finally, check and see if their District Clerk's office has a website that you can search.See question
I was having an extremely difficult time peeing and was only able to produce a really really small sample that was apparently not enough to be sent back for analysis. At that point the gentleman who was monitoring me taking the UA takes the cup of...
The first thing you do is report that person to the supervisor of the probation department. They tampered with your test, causing a false positive due to dilution. If a urine sample is diluted with water, they automatically assume that you were dirty, and that you attempted to hide that by diluting the sample. Hope this helps.See question
I refused a breathalyzer. So I have the Alr suspension. Judge ordered interlock..which I now have. DPS sent a letter saying I could get a restricted interlock license after paying the fee and submitting documents. The interlock is for 270 days...
If this was your first DWI, you are facing a 180 day suspension for refusing to provide a breath or blood specimen. If you had a prior DWI within 10 years from the date of your last arrest for DWI, you are looking at a two year license suspension. You can petition the County Court for an occupational or "restricted" license. You will be required to have an interlock device, an SR 22, and liability insurance. Remember, before you can get your license back from DPS, you have to pay a $125 reinstatement fee. Because you will be ordered to have an interlock device, be on the lookout for a letter from DPS saying that you have to pay them an additional $10 fee. Hope this helps.See question
Must that fine be paid or could it be expunged?
I believe what you are looking for is Omnibase. It's a multi state ticket clearinghouse. Call 1-800-686-0570 . I think they can help you.See question
i have court next week and i have stopped smoking but if they were to do a drug test on the day of court i will most likely fail....and also its my first offence so i would probably get probation
If your first drug test is positive for marijuana or it's metabolites, they will expect that to dissipate down to 0 over time. If it does not, or if it goes up by your next U.A. - you're in violation of your bond conditions. Remember, a standard condition of your release on bond is that you remain drug and alcohol free.See question
Parked on the side of the road,,having a medical situation,,sweating shaking,,even tho alcohol had been consumed earlier in the day,,,,arrested,,blood taken n license taken,,bonded out, but refused license back,,,is that legal?
Under the Texas Implied Consent laws, if you refuse to provide a specimen of your breath or blood when it's requested by a peace officer, you face an administrative drivers license suspension. That law allows the officer to confiscate your license. You can contest the license suspension by requesting an "ALR", or Administrative License revocation Hearing. That request must be made within 15 days from the date of your arrest. You will definitely want to contact an experienced DWI lawyer in your area who can help you with the ALR, as well as the underlying DWI case. Hope this helps.See question
