Why wasn't my license taken after DWI?
I blew over a .08 in Texas, but when I was bailed out, they gave me back my license and didn't give me a temporary license. Do I need to tell DPS or someone about this?
Your licence isn't suspended until the 40 day. If you request a hearing within 15 days you are entitled to a hearing...
What should I do if I got a DWI but I have never had to pay surcharges?
I received my DWI in 2013 in Texas where I live but my drivers license is from Louisiana and I never had it changed to Texas. I have yet to pay any surcharges. What should I do?
I am not licensed in either state, but in general I would advise seeing a local DWI attorney to clear the matter up and...
If I got a DWI dismissed through pretrial diversion, can I have it removed from my driving record?
I am just wondering how a DWI dismissal would work with driving record in Texas.
If your DWI was dismissed, it should not appear on your driving record; there is a difference, however, between a...

Can i reduce my dwi felony to a misdemeanor after im done with probation?
Im currently on probation but im about to finish my 7year sentance of probation. I wanted to see if theres a way i can seal my record or drop it down to a misdemeanor. Or if theres a way it wont come up in my background for when i apply for jobs or try to get an apartment.

Will I get a summons to appear in court?
I fell asleep in my car after a night of drinking in Texas. The city police showed up to do a check on me. Field sobriety test and breathalyzer were conducted. Not sure what I blew but I'm sure it was over. No blood test was done. They parked my car and called me a cab. No arrest and no citation. I told them that I would be flying back home to Ohio in two days, and that I was only in Texas that week for work. That was 7 days ago. Is there any chance that I might get a summons to go back to Texas now that I'm in Ohio?
Yes, there is a chance, But you may have gotten lucky (in more ways than one).
