There are two reasons you may need to get your car back after a Texas driving while intoxicated (DWI) arrest:
- Your vehicle was towed to get it off of the street
- Your vehicle was impounded as a part of the penalties for the DWI
Getting your vehicle back in either of these situations requires you to pay towing and impound fees as well as taking other steps to prove you own the car.
Getting Your Car Back After Being Towed
If the police officers had your car towed following your arrest and there are no restrictions on getting it, you should go as soon as possible. You will have to pay several fees to get your car back, and these fees may increase each day.
You will likely need to pay:
- Towing charges
- Tow yard charges
- Daily fees for the storage of your vehicle
The police department will let you know which company towed your car, where your car was towed, and how you can call them to find out how much you owe. You will also likely need to take proof of ownership, proof of insurance, and a valid driver’s license or permit.
Getting Your Impounded Car Back
Texas law also allows towing and impounding vehicles as a deterrent in connection with a DWI case. If this happened to you, we can help you fight the impoundment of your vehicle. You will still need to pay towing and impound fees, and you may also need to install an ignition interlock device on the vehicle and pay a monthly monitoring fee. There may also be other terms related to the release of your car depending on the facts of your case.
