What is an ALR hearing?
When you are arrested for DWI, the State of Texas is required to give you a Notice of Suspension Temporary Driving Permit (DIC-23) and a Statutory Warning (DIC-24). These documents serve three purposes:
- To remind you that you were arrested for DWI;
- To inform you that your driver’s license is subject to suspension for 90 days if you provided a breath or blood specimen with an alcohol content of 0.08 or higher or 180 days if you refused to provide a specimen; and
- To inform you that you are entitled to challenge that suspension at an Administrative License Revocation hearing (ALR).
