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. A person arrested for DWI/DUI who fails or refuses a chemical test after being properly requested to do so by the arresting officer is subject to an ALR suspension.
If you fail or refuse a chemical test, your license is not suspended immediately. Rather, the police will take your license and give you a temporary driving permit labeled “Notice of Suspension – Temporary Driving Permit.” If you do not 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 arrest. If you request a hearing, your license will not be suspended until after you have fought for it before an administrative judge.
