Attorneys That Care For Your Best Interest Dedicated to One Client At a Time

Driving While License Invalid (DWLI)

Criminal Defense Attorneys in Waco, TX

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.

Our Waco criminal defense 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 will not suddenly start delivering your groceries to your front door.

The Serious Consequences of a DWLI Conviction

One of the significant problems associated with DWLI charges, when they are not taken seriously, is that they can lead to additional and lasting issues with fines and license suspension:

  • A driver with a DWLI on his/her record drives anyway, faced with the overwhelming need to keep up with obligations and life in general.
  • He/she is arrested again, resulting in additional surcharges and lengthened license suspension.
  • The fines add up, creating a vicious cycle that needs to be stopped for a driver to experience any relief or hope for a future that includes a valid driver’s license.
