What Happens After My License Gets Suspended When I Was Arrested For DWI?

Administrative Suspensions are regulated by Chapter 524 of the Texas Transportation Code. If a person fails to request a hearing or fails to appear to a hearing withou just cause, then the DPS's ruling or determination is final. A very important reason why a person should request a hearing is that the request for a hearing will stay the suspension of the license until the date of the final decision by the administratlve law judge. Thus, a person's license will not be suspended immediately if there has been a formal request for an administrative hearing.

A driver's license suspension hearing will be before an administrative law judge and cannot be held earlier than the 11th day after the request for a hearing has been made. However, DPS desires for most suspensions to be resolved within 40 days of the person's arrest. It is apparent then that DPS does appear to fast-track the review of a suspension of a driver's license.
