Fast Track to Texas Ticket Dismissal: Do It Online!

To dismiss a Texas traffic ticket with a TDLR (Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation) approved driver safety course, you’ll need to follow these steps:

  1. Check Eligibility: Ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria to take a defensive driving course for ticket dismissal in Texas. Generally, you qualify if you hold a valid non-commercial driver’s license, have not completed a defensive driving course within the specified timeframe (usually 12 months), and your violation is eligible for dismissal through this option.
  2. Request Permission from the Court: Get in touch with the court handling your ticket and request permission to enroll in a defensive driving course for dismissal. The court will provide you with detailed instructions on how to proceed, and there might be certain documents to submit or a fee to pay.
  3. Enroll in an Approved Defensive Driving Course: Texas offers approved driver safety courses. Choose one of these TDLR-approved providers and enroll in their defensive driving course. Make sure the course is authorized for ticket dismissal purposes.
  4. Complete the Course: Successfully finish the defensive driving course within the designated timeframe. The course usually lasts around six hours and can be completed either online or in a classroom setting, depending on your preference and the options offered by the course provider.
  5. Obtain the Completion Certificate: Upon completing the defensive driving course, you will receive a completion certificate. Verify that the certificate includes your name, the course provider’s name, the course completion date, and any other required information.
  6. Submit the Certificate to the Court: Submit the completion certificate to the court that granted you permission to take the defensive driving course. Follow the court’s instructions on how to submit the certificate, which may involve mailing, faxing, or hand-delivering it.
  7. Pay Any Associated Fees: Be aware that there might be fees associated with taking the defensive driving course and having your ticket dismissed. Pay any required fees, such as the course fee and any court processing fees, as instructed by the court.
  8. Await Dismissal Confirmation: After submitting the completion certificate and paying any necessary fees, await confirmation from the court regarding the dismissal of your ticket. The court will likely send you a letter or notice to confirm the dismissal.
  9. Keep Records: Keep copies of all documentation related to the defensive driving course and ticket dismissal for your records. This includes the completion certificate, payment receipts, and any correspondence with the court.

Keep in mind that the specific procedures and requirements may vary based on the jurisdiction and the unique circumstances of your ticket. To ensure accurate and up-to-date information related to your case, it’s advisable to consult your court or seek legal advice.
