1- Driving Under the Influence
If you’re caught driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), you risk the real potential of having your license suspended and rightfully so. Anyone who drives under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a risk to the road. Texas’ DWI penalties state that drivers 21 and older with a first time DWI offense could have their license suspended for up to two years along with a hefty annual surcharge up to $2,000 for three years to keep your license.
2- Repeat Violations or Habitual Offenses
A habitual offense is considered multiple repeated offenses with a general time range of 12 months or up to three years. Examples include reckless driving and numerous traffic violations. In Texas, a habitual offender is considered a person with two prior felonies. According to the Texas Transportation Department of Motor Vehicles, a person will have his or her license suspended is they commit two or more separate offenses of a violation as well as a habitual violator of traffic laws.
3- Driving Without Insurance
It’s mandatory to have auto insurance in the state of Texas. If you’re pulled over and the police officer finds out you don’t have insurance, you might receive a traffic ticket with instructions to show up in court or a police station. You could have the ticket dropped and simply pay a fine but you could also have your license suspended. According to DMV.org, failure to present your auto insurance will result in a suspended drivers license. If you’re missing documentation at the time of questioning, you have the chance to submit proof to the TX DPS.
