ALR, or Administrative License Revocation, is an administrative process in Texas used to suspend the driver’s license of a person who is arrested for DWI or DUI in Bryan, TX. A person arrested for DWI or DUI who fails or refuses a breath/blood test after being properly requested to do so by the arresting officer is subject to an ALR suspension.
If you fail or refuse such a test, your license is not suspended immediately. Rather, the Bryan police will take your license and give you a temporary driving permit labeled “Notice of Suspension – Temporary Driving Permit.” If you don’t request a hearing to fight the license suspension within 15 days of the arrest – your license will be suspended automatically on the 41st day following your initial incarceration. If you request a hearing, your license will not be suspended until after you have fought for it before an ALR judge.
