Can I Keep My Drivers License After a DWI in Texas? 

There are many negative consequences of a DWI. You could spend time in jail, be forced to pay large fines, suffer embarrassment, and lose your drivers license. Most people care greatly about all of these negative issues, but they might be more concerned about losing their drivers license.

Why would this concern you? Because you probably need to drive in order to get to work and function in your daily life. You are likely wondering, “Can I keep my drivers license after a DWI in Texas?” 

Beating a DWI Charge

Most DWI convictions come with the loss of your drivers license, at least for a little while. However, if you aren’t convicted of the crime of DWI, your license could be returned to you. This is one important reason that you might be considering battling a drunk driving charge in Texas.

There are a few other reasons to fight a DWI charge, as well.

  • You want to avoid paying large fines.
  • You don’t want your financial stability to be impacted.
  • You want to avoid attending a DWI treatment program.
  • You don’t want to have a crime on your permanent record.
