One of the pitfalls about being young is that you are subject to harsher penalties for making mistakes. If you are under 21 years old and have been charged with an alcohol related offense or failed an alcohol intoxication test, you have a higher hurdle to overcome before you can obtain an occupational license. Failing an intoxication test will suspend your drivers license and the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) will not be allowed under the Texas Transportation Code (Section 524.022) to issue an occupational license until the following occurs:

 

  • A minor must wait 30 days after the administrative license suspension has been in effect, if no prior alcohol-related convictions, before issuing an occupational license.
  • A minor must wait 90 days after the administrative license suspension has been in effect, if one prior alcohol-related convictions, before issuing an occupational license.
  • A minor is not eligible for an occupational license if he/she has two or more prior alcohol-related convictions
Of course, a minor’s license may not be revoked for failing an intoxication test if he/she can win at the administrative license hearing. We are experienced attorneys who represent those who have been accused and arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated. If we can request a hearing timely, we may be able to prevent an administrative suspension from ever occurring. Call our office to discuss your legal options.
