What Are The Penalties For DWI In Texas?

Did you know that there are both criminal and administrative penalties for being convicted of a DWI, even if it's your first time? First-offense DWI convictions can lead to serious consequences, such as:

  • Up to $4,000 in fines
  • License revocation for up to 12 months
  • Up to a year in jail
  • Alcohol education program
  • Probation
  • Ignition interlock devices installed in your vehicle

If you are a military veteran, you may be able to have your first DWI charges dismissed or expunged! Reach out to our office to learn more.

The severity of your penalties depends on how serious your DWI is considered to be. Subsequent DWI convictions also result in much steeper penalties — with fines as high as $10,000 and a prison sentence of as long as 10 years for third-time offenders. If you are under the age of 21, underage drinking will be added as an additional charge
