Defensive Driving Safety Course Requirements

You may be eligible to take a Driving Safety Course (DSC) on any one of the moving violations shown on the ticket you were issued. You can not take more than one driving safety course per year in Austin or anywhere in the State of Texas to get a ticket dismissed. Also, if you were ticketed for any of the following violations, you may not be eligible to take a Austin Driving Safety Course for that particular violation:

  • Speeding ticket for 25 mph or more above the posted speed limit in Austin
  • No auto insurance or failure to maintain financial responsibility
  • Leaving the scene of a collision in Travis County
  • Illegally Passing a School Bus
  • Ticketed while driving in a Construction Zone when construction workers are present
  • Cited while riding a bicycle or riding a man-powered vehicle that is not a car
  • Also note: If you held a commercial driver license at the time of the traffic violation issuance, you are not eligible to take Driving Driving Safety Courses, even if you were driving a non-commercial vehicle at the time of being cited.

How Often Can I Take a Safety Course in Austin

No matter where you live in Texas, be it in Travis County or otherwise, you can only take a Defensive Driving Safety for ticket dismissal once each year. Also, you have to request permission to take this electronic driving school course for purposes of ticket dismissal BEFORE the appearance date shown on your ticket citation. Further, your Texas DPS driving record must show that you have not yet completed a Defensive Driver Safety Course within the past year preceding the exact date of this moving violation offense.

How long Do I Have To Complete My Driver Safety Course

If you meet all Austin court requirements for attending Defensive Driver School, you have 90 days from your court REQUEST date to finish the Defensive Driving Course (or Motorcycle Operator's Training Course (MOTC), if applicable). Remember to allow sufficient time for you completion certificate to be received from TexasDefensiveDriving.com (your defensive driving school). Your court will also need to see a certified copy of your official DPS driving record. We can help you obtain your driving record as well.

**Note that you do not have to set up a court appearance date to talk to a prosecutor for permission to take a defensive driving course. Just go to a Travis County court location within 10 days of your citation and request permission to enroll in a Driver Safety Course, like our TEA Approved TexasDefensiveDriving.com.
