DWI IN TEXAS

In Texas, a person commits a DWI offense if he operates a motor vehicle in a public place while intoxicated. There are two ways to prove Intoxication in Texas: 1) Not having the normal use of mental or physical faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol (or drug); and 2) Having an alcohol concentration of 0.08 or higher.

During an investigation for DWI, the officer will perform Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, SFSTs, to determine probable cause for an arrest. After an arrest for a DWI, the officer will read the statutory warnings and ask you for a specimen of your breath or blood. If you refuse a warrant for your blood will be executed. The officer will take your driver’s license and will issue you a temporary license.

This permit is only valid for 14 days. You must request a hearing within 15 days of being served notice, usually, the date of the arrest to request an ALR hearing to contest the suspension of your driver’s license. Your license will automatically be suspended if you do not request a hearing within 15 days of your arrest or suspension notice date.

Penalties for a DWI in Texas:

  • First Offense – Class B Misdemeanor, punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.
  • Second Offense – Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
  • Third Offense – Third-degree felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
  • DWI Enhanced – If it is shown at your trial that your BAC was .15 or higher at the time of testing the charge will be elevated to a Class A misdemeanor even though it is your first offense.

If you are convicted, your license can be suspended for up to two years for each offense. To retain your license you must pay an annual surcharge for a three-year period. The judge may also require an ignition interlock device, such as a guardian interlock on your vehicle and other conditions.
