FAQ: What is an ALR Hearing or Suspension in Texas?

What is an ALR Hearing or Suspension?

ALR stands for Administrative License Revocation. An ALR Hearing is the process by which a person who has been arrested for DWI can contest the driver’s license suspension that is imposed for refusal or failure of a breath or blood test during a DWI investigation. The suspension goes into effect automatically if an ALR Hearing is not requested within 15 days of the arrest. An individual can request a hearing by following the instructions provided on the notice of suspension, but it is generally best to have an attorney do it.

If you have been charged with DWI, you should retain a qualified attorney as soon as possible to ensure that this and other rights are adequately protected.
