Driver's License Suspensions

Austin Driver's License Suspension Lawyers

Helping You Navigate Your Case

Driving is a privilege in Texas, not a right. Unless you obey traffic laws and maintain an appropriate driving record, the State can suspend your driver's license. Continuing to drive while your license is suspended can be a serious offense.

If the suspension is related to a conviction for driving while intoxicated, you could go to jail for as long as 180 days and be ordered to pay a fine of as much as $2,000. Our Austin driver's license suspension attorneys can help by fighting to avoid a suspension of your driver's license or defending you in court against a charge of driving while suspended.

To receive the care and compassion you deserve, contact our team online or via phone at (512) 991-0576.

How Do Driver's License Suspensions Work in Texas?

The loss of your driving privileges may occur for several reasons, but some of the most common causes include:

  • Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
  • Points on your driving record from traffic tickets
  • Driving an uninsured vehicle
  • Using a motor vehicle in the commission of a felony
  • Ignoring traffic tickets

Occupational Driver's License (ODL)

Getting to and from work can be difficult in Travis County when you cannot drive because of a suspended driver's license. Our Austin attorneys review the basis for suspension of your license and will help you obtain an occupational driver's license if you are eligible. An ODL permits you to drive to and from work, school-related activities, and essential household duties, such as going food shopping or to a doctor's appointment.

Driver's License Reinstatement

Contacting our team here at Cofer & Connelly, PLLC, before your driver's license is suspended allows him to fight to prevent it through an administrative hearing. Depending upon the reason for the suspension, we might be able to contest it through a court proceeding or by taking other steps to help get your license reinstated.
