If applying by mail, please wait until the court has received your court costs, your signed forms, a copy of your insurance and a copy of your drivers license before taking the course. Upon approval you will be granted 90 days to complete the course and to obtain a certified copy of your driving record from the Texas Department of Public Safety in Austin. Upon successful completion and returning of your documents to the court within 90 days, your citation will be dismissed.
The court is not allowed to recommend a specific defensive driving course. Any course certified by the State of Texas for ticket dismissal will be acceptable including on line course and video.
To request defensive driving you must have a valid Texas driver's license and insurance card. Your request must be post marked no later than your initial appearance date.
