drivesafe_signs

If you have received a moving violation, you may be eligible to complete a Driving Safety Course and have your charge(s) dismissed.

 

How do I request completing the Driving Safety Course option?

You must appear in person to request the Driving Safety Course on or before your court date, by 3:00 p.m., at the Municipal Court.  Approval must be received from the Municpal Court before you begin the course.

The following requirements must be met:

  • You are not currently enrolled in a driving safety course.
  • You have a valid Texas driver’s license or permit.  (Commercial license holders may not take driving safety for dismissal of a moving violation.)
  • You have not taken a defensive driving course in order to have ticket dismissed in the preceding twelve (12) months from the date of this offense.
  • You must provide proof of liability insurance (copy of insurance card) which shows you as a covered driver.

Note: Violators sixteen (16) years of age or under must appear in court accompanied by parent or guardian.
