There are a variety of crimes that carry the possibility of a driver’s license suspension. This suspension could be triggered at the time you are arrested or if you accept a final conviction on the crime you are facing. The Department of Public Safety (DPS) operates independently from your criminal case. If you have been given notice your license will be suspended, it is important you discuss your options regarding your license with your attorney as soon as possible. You will have a limited timeframe to contest a license suspension and if you miss this window, you will be unable to fight for your license to stay active.
