While not every state in the U.S. has enacted Administrative License Revocation (ALR) Laws, Texas, along with 40 other states has. These laws are based on a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher. Deemed constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court as long as provisions are made for a swift “post-suspension hearing”, the majority of suspensions don’t last much more than 90 days, however, the amount of time will depend on your location and the severity of your charges.
While in most cases, a suspension does not lead to loss of job or income as there are generally enough options for getting a ride, the suspension may likely cause more than just a little aggravation. In Plano, residents do have the option of taking the DART to many destinations such as the airport, the hospital and even the Dallas Zoo however, getting to other destinations can take longer and cost much more money than if you had your own transportation. More than just inconvenient, being charged with an alcohol related crime which leads to an ALR can impact your life in other ways. From points on your license to loss of certain job opportunities, it is always in your best interest to find help from someone who knows the laws in your state and can help ensure the best outcome possible in your case.
If you failed a sobriety test or refused to take one and live in Plano, you are likely facing an ALR. If so, you only have 15 days to schedule an ALR hearing. If you don’t, your license will be suspended within 40 days of your notification of suspension.
