How does your Texas driver’s license become suspended?

A certain number of traffic violations triggers a Texas driver license suspension. For example, your license is automatically suspended if you have four traffic violations in a year or seven in a 24-month period. However, you and your attorney can contest your driver license suspension within 20 days from the date of the “Notice of Suspension”. The license suspension is stayed until the Judge makes a ruling on your case. You can also have your driver’s license suspended for severe violations, such as drunk driving or causing a fatal accident.
