The Administrative License Revocation (ALR) Program in Texas is not related to the criminal court process that unfolds after a person is arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). The ALR process entails a field sobriety test wherein a person can be arrested if they perform poorly. Then a person will be asked to perform a chemical test which is either a breath or blood test. If they refuse, they can have their license suspended for between 90 days and two years. If they take the test and fail they may also have their license suspended. At this point the individual will be given a temporary driving permit. If you are at this stage in the process and have been arrested for a DWI contact a San Antonio criminal defense lawyer from The Law Office of John J. Fox right away.
