5 Steps to Dismissing Your Texas Traffic Ticket

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Defensive Driving Tips

The State of Texas allows anyone one traffic ticket dismissal within a given 12-month period. Here are five steps to dismissing your Texas traffic ticket:

  1. You must have a non-commercial driver’s license
  2. You must admit guilt or plead no contest (nolo contendere)
  3. The citation must be for driving within 25 miles per hour of the posted limit
  4. Your citation does not involve an infraction in a construction zone
  5. Your court must give you permission to take a certified defensive driving course.

Court Permission

Contacting the court indicated on the back of your citation will help you avoid delays in processing. Seeking court permission will also help to avoid added expenses and repeating the course.

Don’t Forget the Details

If the municipal court or the justice of the peace charges a court fee for you to take a driving safety course, and if they require you to obtain a copy of your driving record from the Department of Public Safety (DPS), those fees are in addition to the price that you will pay for the driving safety course.

For more information on dismissal of tickets the transportation code on the Harris County Justice of the Peace Courts website defines the Texas statute in detail.
