Most of us rely upon having our driver’s license in order to provide transportation for ourselves and our loved ones. Whether traveling to work or school, running errands or just going out for a night on the town, being without a driver’s license can present a major-even life disrupting-problem. Possessing a driver’s license isn’t a right-it’s a privilege, and if you are convicted for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), you will likely face losing that privilege for a period of time. If you’ve been charged with DWI , it’s important to be aware of what you may be facing in terms of license suspension, as well as what steps you will need to take to have your license reinstated.
Texas drivers who register a blood or breath alcohol content level of 0.08 or greater will be arrested and charged with Driving While Intoxicated. If convicted of DWI, and depending on your record, you could face having your license suspended for as long as 2 years. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, the following are timelines for driver’s license suspension for first, as well as multiple, DWI offenses:
In addition to the above license suspension times, you will be required to pay license reinstatement fees and an annual fee once your license suspension has been lifted. These annual fees range from $1,000 to $2,000, and are required to be paid yearly for a term of 3 years in order to retain your license
Drivers who has lost their license due to DWI must meet certain requirements before their license can be reinstated. According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, requirements for license reinstatement after DWI requirements for license reinstatement after DWI
In some cases, the court may have ordered an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) be installed on your vehicle in order for you to drive. This device will measure your breath alcohol content-if alcohol is detected, the IID will disable your car until you can pass the breath test. If the court has ordered an IID be installed on your vehicle, a restricted interlock license will be granted to you. You will be responsible for paying the fees associated with your restricted license and for the IID, as well as any license reinstatement fees.

I wholeheartedly endorse this Law Firm. They were hired to handle a felony theft charge on my daughter in Denton County arising from a domestic dispute with a roommate. Their experience as criminal defense attorneys, along with their excellent working relationship with clients and officials in the criminal defense system, make him an excellent choice to represent anyone facing criminal charges. I would definitely hire The Wheeler Law Offices again, should the occasion arise.
I had got a ticket when my insurance had expired and I found The Wheeler Law office and they got my ticket dismissed! I am very very pleased with their services and would recommend them to anyone and i will for sure be calling them again if need be.
We contacted The Wheeler Law Offices to handle a few tickets that had the potential to be “troublesome” – they handled them quickly AND were very good about keeping me in the loop regarding changes. Since that time, I have needed to contact them and he continued to be extremely helpful.
I hired them into 2013 my cases were a little different than most. I had 2 DWI cases back to back within four months. Most people would just assume that they would have to do jail time no matter what. But they not only kept me from doing jail time they took care of both cases in a manner that I believe only they could have done. I won’t say how much probation time I received. But I can tell you that it ended up being a ridiculously short amount of time. All that being said not only was I in trouble with the law but I lost my job. They help me out financially I was able to pay them when I had the chance. And I can say with all honesty and certainty it was worth every penny If you are in trouble with any such cases that they take care of I can guarantee you will not be displeased. They take care of things in a very professional and friendly way. The Wheeler Law Offices are easy-going and very professional and I would hire them again anytime.
Not only are they very neat and presentable, but they were also nice and very personable in a very nerve wracking and foreign time for me. They were always upfront and never promised what they couldn’t handle. I believe time on the prosecution side at the District Attorneys office helped them know what to expect and to get my case dismissed. I hope I never need to but I would definitely use their services again, and recommend them to anyone else in need.

They successfully dismissed my DWI case! They also successfully overturned my drivers license suspension. They were always available to answer my questions and keep me informed during the entire process. I am extremely thankful for their hard work on my behalf. I would strongly recommend The Wheeler Law Offices to represent you. They are very knowledgable about the court process and how to successfully represent facts to the judge. My results prove their effectiveness. I am truly thankful they represented me.
They got my DWI down to an obstruction of passageway MID TRIAL! They helped me out with a payment plan and was available anytime I had a question. They kept me up to date on everything happening and were amazing to work with. They’ve been straight forward about my case and continue to give me great legal advice. If you find yourself in this situation, my condolences, it’s no fun but this is your Law Firm. They were great!!
I got arrested for DWI, I needed a very good attorney to help me out. The moment my father and I walked into their office, I knew they were the attorneys for me! They know exactly what they are doing and I am very pleased with their services. I would highly recommend them to anyone, and without a doubt will call them if needed again. They got my DWI charges dropped down to an obstruction of the road charge. That is very impressive!
They are really really good attorneys that handled two of my cases both were pretty serious charges and one them got dismissed and will also work with you with payments if money is ever an issue. They are the best I was lucky enough to find such a good attorney like them if anything they will be the one firm I will ever go too.
The Wheeler Law Offices are the best defense attorneys I’ve ever met and worked with, they worked very hard to see that my charges were reduced. Excellent attorney glad I had them to represent me.
