An emergency suspension is effective immediately without a hearing on notice to the license holder.


On written request of the license holder, the department shall conduct a hearing not earlier than the 10th day or later than the 30th day after the date the hearing request is received to determine if the emergency suspension is to be continued, modified, or rescinded.


The hearing and any appeal are governed by the department’s rules for a contested case hearing and by Chapter 2001 (Administrative Procedure), Government Code.
