Administrative License Revocation Hearings in Dallas
When you are arrested, if you refuse to take a breath or blood test or if you take a breath test and the result is .08 percent or greater, the officer will give you a notice of suspension. You then have 15 days to contact DPS by phone or fax and request an ALR (administrative license suspension) hearing. This hearing will be your chance to challenge your license suspension. If you fail to schedule your ALR hearing within 15 days, your license will be suspended 40 days after the date of your suspension notice.
If you consent to a blood test, the officer will not serve you with notice of suspension. If the Department of Public Safety receives notice that your blood test result was .08 percent or greater, they will mail you a notice of suspension in the mail. You will then have 10 days to request your ALR hearing. It is essential that DPS have your current mailing address. If the address on your driver's license is not current, you need to notify DPS of your address change.
