Driving While License Invalid

Driving While License Invalid Lawyer in Austin

Trusted Criminal Defense Attorneys Serving TX Since 2001

If your license was revoked or suspended, it can be difficult to fulfill your daily responsibilities and obligations. There may be circumstances that you can only handle with your car.

As tempting as it may be, however, driving while your license is invalid (DWLI) is illegal and can call for criminal charges. The punishments for continuing to drive without a license can be steep.

You will need an experienced Texas DWLI lawyer from The Law Offices of Alex R. Hernandez, Jr. to help you build a logical case that keeps your best interests in mind. Contact us today if you are facing criminal DWLI charges that jeopardize your future independence.

What Punishments Could I Face for Driving With an Invalid License?

Texas takes driving offenses seriously, as they may lead to grave consequences involving accidents or worse criminal acts if they are left unchecked. If you have been arrested for a DWLI charge, you will likely be unable to reinstate your license anytime soon.

Penalties for Driving Without a License in Texas

Additionally, you may face strict penalties, such as:

  • Up to $4,000 in fines
  • Up to one year behind bars
  • Extension of initial license revocation or suspension
  • Community service – typically roadway clean-up

If you were intoxicated or had no current insurance at the time of your DWLI arrest, the penalties for your conviction could be much higher. The same can be said if you have been arrested for DWLI charges before, or if you have a criminal history of driving offenses.
