Driving Under the Influence (DUI/DWI)


You are intoxicated in Texas if you are driving a motor vehicle in a public place, and you have lost your normal mental or physical abilities due to drugs or alcohol. Click on the law link to see the actual Texas law. You are assumed to be intoxicated if your BAC, Blood Alcohol Concentration, is 0.08 or greater. Your license could be suspended if you are arrested for a DUI/DWI (Driving Under the Influence / Driving While Intoxicated). Click on the suspension link to see the length of the possible suspension on the Notice of Suspension Temporary Driving Permit form. An ALR Hearing would be held to suspend your license. If you went to a jury trial, the jury would receive the jury instructions on the link. Click on the general link for more general information about DUIs.
