Can DWI Probation be Reduced in Texas?

Texas law does not allow a court to terminate a DWI probation early. For example, if you are placed on a one year term of Community Supervision Probation and complete all of the conditions (community service hours, classes, court costs, fines…) after eight months, your probation may not be terminated prior to the expiration of the twelve month period. This rule is specific to DWI.

However, a court may reduce the probation conditions imposed on you as a result of your DWI conviction. For example, your attorney may petition the court to modify the condition requiring you to install an Ignition Interlock device on your vehicle if you have had it installed the amount of time required by the statute without any violations. Similarly, the court can modify a condition requiring community service hours by reducing the amount if the judge deems such an action to be appropriate to your case.
