Tarrant County License Reinstatement Attorney for DWI Suspensions

Tarrant County License Reinstatement Attorney Serving Texas

Not being able to drive can present a major disruption to your life. Texas is a large, sprawling state that can be quite difficult to get around without driving. Everything from commuting to work to doing household errands can become a hassle - not to mention expensive. If your driver's license has been suspended, you probably want it back as soon as possible. Whether you were charged with your first DWI, received multiple DWIs, or were charged with another serious traffic violation, there are requirements you must satisfy before the Secretary of State will reinstate your driving privileges. These requirements can vary based on the reason your license was initially suspended.

The Dameron Law Firm is committed to helping Texans get back on the road safely after a license suspension. Our firm is skilled at addressing any barriers you may be up against in your efforts to get back on the road. We know how difficult it can be to get by without a driver's license, and we want to help you return to life as usual.

Fort Worth Lawyer for Driver's License Reinstatement After DWI Suspension

Enduring a long DWI-related license suspension is not easy. License suspensions related to drunk driving can be prolonged, sometimes lasting years after a repeat DWI. Even when the proscribed period of suspension has ended, reinstatement is not automatic or instantaneous. You will first be required to pay a reinstatement fee in addition to any other fees associated with your DWI charge. Then, you will need a Financial Responsibility Insurance Certificate, or an SR-22, to prove that you are insured. Since your license has been suspended, the state may see you as a high risk driver, and it will want to verify that you have insurance coverage.

If there were any other conditions imposed, such as attending drug or alcohol counseling, you will also need to provide proof that you have completed these programs. The process to remove holds from your license can take 21 days or more. Our firm can guide you in the right direction.

If your license was suspended for any other reason, the documentation you will need to reinstate your license will vary depending on what caused the suspension. For many, paying an owed amount is the first step. For example, if your license is suspended for non-payment of child support, you will need to be out of arrears before you can get your license back.

Likewise, those who had their licenses suspended due to excessive traffic tickets will need to have settled each ticket before they are eligible for reinstatement. The Dameron Law Firm is committed to helping those whose licenses have been suspended for minor or technical violations return to driving.

Legal Help When You Need an Occupational License

In some instances, Texans with suspended licenses are eligible for what is called an occupational license. This special type of license allows you to drive, but with restrictions. In general, occupational license holders can drive to school or work and for other limited purposes, like attending religious services or going to the grocery store. For DWI offenders, an ignition interlock device is a typical requirement.

You will need a court order to apply for an occupational license. We recommend being represented by counsel if you plan to apply for a hardship license. Our firm will evaluate your case and design the strongest possible arguments for you to retain the ability to drive yourself where you really need to go.
