What Does ALR Suspension Failure Mean?

What Happens at an ALR Hearing in Texas?

An ALR hearing begins with an administrative law judge looking at the evidence from your DWI arrest.  The Judge then determines whether your driver’s license should be revoked or not. Remember, this hearing is separate from your criminal court hearing.

The state will provide its evidence to prove your driver’s license should remain suspended. You and your attorney have the chance to provide your own evidence to contest the suspension.

If you failed a breath or blood test, DPS must prove the following:

  • The arresting officer had reasonable suspicion to pull you over.
  • The arresting officer had probable cause to arrest you for driving while intoxicated.
  • Your breath of blood test was a .08 (BAC) or higher.
