The Stakes Rise with Each DWI Conviction 

Every additional DWI offense in Texas increases conviction penalties (as outlined by the Texas Penal Code). A second DWI conviction can lead to fines up to $4,000, a possible jail term ranging from 30 days to one (1) year, and suspension of your driver's license for up to two (2) years. Moreover, you may be required to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle and attend mandatory educational programs.

As the stakes rise, a third DWI conviction in Texas is categorized as a third-degree felony. This dramatic shift in severity can carry penalties including a fine up to $10,000, imprisonment for two (2) to ten (10) years, and suspension of your driver’s license for up to two (2) years post-release. 

Additional penalties may include: 

  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device
  • Extensive community service hours 
  • Probation periods 
  • Mandatory participation in an alcohol or substance abuse program 
  • Additional state fees beyond punitive fines 

At Winters & Chidester, we are acutely aware of these potential penalties and the profound effect they could have on your life. Our legal team is committed to defending clients facing multiple DWI convictions with strength and tenacity.

    Possibility of Reinstating Driving Privileges in Texas 

    If you're facing the daunting reality of losing your driving privileges due to multiple DWIs in Texas, hope is not lost. You might be eligible to apply for a license reinstatement after serving any court-mandated suspension period and completing specified requirements such as DWI education programs. The state provides avenues to restore driving rights, although often with stringent prerequisites and paying the required reinstatement fees. 

    Another option some people may be eligible for is an occupational (or essential need) driver's license. This limited license permits travel to essential destinations, like work, school, and medical appointments.
