Dallas Driver’s License Restoration Attorney

Has your drivers license been suspended?  Have you received too many traffic tickets?  We are driver’s license restoration attorneys.  Without a driver’s license, you may not be able to get to work, school, buy groceries, and engage in other activities required to sustain life.  Concerning suspended driver’s licenses:

Point system When you’re convicted of a moving violation, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) assigns a certain number of points against your drivers license.  On most moving violations, two points are assessed.  If an accident was involved, an additional point is added.  Six or more points acquired during a three year period will result in a $300 surcharge.  Failure to pay the surcharge will result in yet another driver’s license suspension.

DWI– if you refuse a breath or blood test after a DWI arrest, you’re subject to a suspended driver’s license for 180 days.  A failed breath or blood test will cause your license to be suspended for 90 days.  In either instance, we may able to help you get an occupational driver’s license which will allow you to drive during the period of suspension.

Surcharges– Convictions for certain traffic offenses result in surcharges.  No drivers, license, no insurance, DWI, and driving while license suspended are all examples of cases that will result in surcharges being imposed, if you’re convicted. Surcharge amounts range from $250 for no driver’s license citations, all the way up to $6000 for certain DWI charges.  Also, if you’ve received traffic tickets, and failed to respond to the court in time, DPS will impose a thirty dollar OMNI fee.

Drug conviction suspension– If you are convicted of possession of a controlled substance, such as cocaine, methamphetamine, or heroin, your Texas driver’s license will be suspended for a period of 180 days.  This suspension occurs, even if the conviction resulted from the possession of a small amount of marijuana.  If convicted, you’re required to successfully complete a Drug Education Program administered by the State of Texas.  If you fail to do so, your driving privileges will be suspended indefinitely until you complete the class.

Occupational driver’s license– An occupational license allows you to drive, even if your drivers license has been suspended.  Occupational driver’s licenses permit you to drive for certain limited purposes, such as work, school, and obtaining groceries.  Also, under an occupational driver’s license, you can only drive for a maximum of twelve hours per day.
