Get Your License Back After A DUI

Published on September 24th, 2019

It’s never a good idea to drive while under the influence—it’s also illegal. If you are caught driving while under the influence, you will get your driver’s license suspended. In order to get your license reinstated, contact your DUI attorney serving San Antonio today and we will help you through the legal process.

The Process

If you are ready to get your license reinstated, you need to consult with the Secretary of State officer who will evaluate your case and eligibility before deciding the next course of action. Eventually, you’ll need to appear before this Secretary of State hearing officer in either an informal hearing or a formal hearing.

Informal Hearing

These hearings are when the DUI was a single, one-off incident and did not result in a fatality. You present your case in this hearing and you will get your license back, but it takes up to 90 days to hear your results.

Formal Hearing

These are for more serious charges such as multiple DUIs or the accident resulting in a fatality. You need to fill our the DAH H 12 form and pay $40 in order to have a formal hearing.
