Administrative License Revocation (ALR)
4 Hour Occupational Driver’s License Education
Achieve is one of only a few approved providers currently offering the 4 hour ALR class.
Many counties in the State of Texas are now requiring individuals arrested for a DWI to attend a 4 hour education class in order to obtain an occupational license. This class is designed to cover education on alcohol and other drugs, safe driving behaviors and a brief overview of the DWI First Offender Education Class. This class is for the Occupational License prior to adjudication of the offense ONLY. It is NOT in place of the DWI first offender education class.
Administrative License Revocation
In addition to criminal charges and suspensions you may face for DWI and alcohol related convictions, you can also face license suspensions under the Administrative License Revocation (ALR) Program.
If you fail a breath or blood test or you refuse to submit to one when pulled over for DWI, a police officer will take your TX license and issue you a 40-day temporary driving permit.
You have 15 days from your arrest, to challenge your pending ALR license suspension and request a hearing. If you don't request a hearing within this time, your license will be suspended after 40 days.
Under the ALR program, your TX driver's license can be suspended from 90 days to 2 years.
If you are under 21 years old, you can also receive a 30, 60, or 90-day license suspension for:
· Buying or attempting to buy alcohol.
· Possessing or consuming alcohol.
· Public intoxication.
If you are convicted of a drug or substance offense, your TX driver's license will be suspended for 180 days.
Other offenses and violations may carry different suspension terms. Please refer to your TX DPS suspension enforcement notification or contact the Texas Department of Public Safety for more information.
