Drivers Safety Course

You may be eligible to take a Driving Safety Course or a Motorcycle Safety Course for dismissal
of your citation.

You can only take a driving safety course for ONE violation per 12 month period anywhere in
the State of Texas.

**DO NOT take the course before Court approval – late or incomplete requests will be rejected.**

You are eligible to take a Driving Safety Course or a Motorcycle Safety Course IF:

  1. You have a valid Texas Driver’s License;
  2. You have NOT completed a Driving Safety Course for ticket dismissal in the previous 12
    months (calculated from the date of previous completion to the date of your current
    citation);
  3. You have current proof of liability insurance showing you as a covered driver;
  4. The violation you are charged with was not in a construction zone with workers present;
  5. Your citation was for a MOVING violation;
  6. If your citation was for SPEEDING, the alleged speed was LESS than 25 mph over the
    posted speed limit;
  7. You DO NOT have a commercial driver’s license or permit.

If you are eligible, you may sign up for a Driving Safety Course by appearing at the Court (don’t
forget to bring a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance) or by sending the following items
to the Court on or before your first court appearance date.

  • Pay the required fee: $109.10 for non‐school zone violations; $134.10 for school zone violations; if you are not sure your violation occurred in a school zone or work zone, please contact the court to ask.
  • A copy of your valid driver’s license (copy must be legible!)
  • A copy of your valid proof of insurance (must show you as a covered driver)
  • The completed Driving Safety Course Request Form, which HAS to be witnessed by a Notary Public of the State of Texas.

ONCE APPROVED BY THE MUNICIPAL JUDGE, THE COURT CLERK WILL MAIL  FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS.
