Loosing your Driver’s License
If you have been arrested or charged with a DWI in Caldwell County, the law enforcement officer will take your driver’s license and issue you a Notice of Suspension. This is for you to know that your license will be suspended fifteen days later. You can schedule an Administrative License Revocation Hearing. During this hearing it will be determined whether or not your license will be revoked. If you do not schedule this hearing, the license will be suspended. It is important to remember this is not a criminal trial and does not have anything to do with your other charges. This system is meant to give individuals charged with a DWI a fair chance to state their case. Your Lockhart DWI lawyer will be able to represent you at this hearing and maximize your odds of keeping your license and driving privileges.
Field Sobriety Tests in Texas
Field Sobriety tests (FSTs) are a series of tests that gauge your balance, coordination, cognitive function, and ability to follow directions. If you have been pulled over under the suspicion of a DWI, you may be asked to perform this series of tests designed to determine your sobriety level. However, a driver is not required to perform these field sobriety tests. If a driver chooses to do so, they will be closely watched and their actions recorded, as their balance, coordination, and ability to follow directions are assessed. The tests are such actions as touching your finger to your nose, walking in a straight line and turning, and following a pen from side to side with your eyes. These tests can prove difficult for some people, even if they are not intoxicated. Poor instructions, fatigue, anxiety, and even weather conditions can affect the results of field sobriety tests. Your Lockhart DWI lawyer will be there to challenge the results of your field sobriety test and find any aspect of the case to use to your advantage.
