LICENSE SUSPENSION

Dallas Occupational Drivers License Lawyer 

Dallas Occupational Drivers License Lawyer

A driver license will automatically be suspended if an individual is convicted of:

  1. Four or more moving traffic violations within a 12-month period, or
  2. Seven or more moving traffic violations within a 24-month period.

Individuals who have been convicted of at least two offenses for a violation that conflicts with a restriction or endorsement printed on their driver license are also subject to a suspension or disqualification.

Hearings

In certain circumstances, individuals may be eligible to request a hearing to contest the suspension of their driver license. If the request is submitted within the required 20 days, DPS will send a letter to the individual to the address on record. The letter will provide the date, time and location of the hearing. Please allow up to 120 days for a hearing to be scheduled. Requests made after the required 20 days will be denied, and the individual will be notified by mail.

Hearings are conducted in a municipal or justice court in the county where the individual lives. During the hearing, the individual is responsible for providing facts to the hearing officer who will determine if the grounds for the suspension are valid.

NOTE: If you have already been through the administrative hearing process and the decision resulted in the suspension of your driver license, you may be eligible to appeal that decision.

Driver License Reinstatement Requirements

Prior to the renewal or issuance of a driver license, individuals must:

  1. Pay the required reinstatement fees, and
  2. Obtain a Financial Responsibility Insurance Certificate (SR-22) from an authorized insurance company and submit it to DPS (an SR-22 must be maintained for two years from the date of conviction).

Occupational License

Individuals may be eligible to apply for an occupational license while their driver license is suspended or revoked. To learn more about occupational licenses or to determine if you may be eligible to apply, please visit www.DallasOccupationalDriversLicenseLawyer.com.

Driver Eligibility Status

For individuals who are required to submit compliance documents (i.e. certificate of completion, SR-22, etc.), their driver eligibility status will change from “ineligible” to “eligible” on the License Eligibility website once all documents have been processed and fees have been paid.
