Driving While License Invalid

Driving While License Invalid (DWLI) In Texas

Admittedly, a person who is charged with driving while license invalid (DWLI) is not going to have their face plastered on the TV show "America's Most Wanted." However, there is a real danger in not taking this charge seriously. A DWLI can really turn into a black hole if you are not careful.

At Sutton Milam & Fanning in Waco, Texas, our lawyers have repeatedly seen people ignore this charge, only to end up facing serious consequences that they did not expect. Why? Because if you simply plead guilty and accept a conviction, this triggers more surcharges and additional license suspension. And we know that just because your license is invalid, that doesn't mean that suddenly your kids don't need to be taken to school or to the doctor or to baseball practice. HEB doesn't suddenly start delivering your groceries to your front door.

So people will often continue to drive and get arrested again, creating more surcharges and more suspensions. In the end, you may owe so much that you've created an overwhelming mountain you may never be able to climb.

We can help. We have pulled hundreds of clients out of the DWLI black hole. We will handle all aspects of your court case. At the same time, we will work with you and DPS to get your driving privileges restored. Sometimes this means an occupational license. Sometimes it means negotiating a payment plan with DPS. Whatever the solution is, we'll figure it out.
