Does A Certificate of Completion Expire?

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Defensive Driving Tips

 
A Certificate of Completion is what you receive when you complete your defensive driving course. If you’re taking a defensive driving course to dismiss a moving violation, the court will require a Certificate of Completion as proof you completed an approved defensive driving course. Most Texas courts require you to complete the defensive driving course within 90 days. A Certificate of Completion does have the “Issue Date” on it and the court will be able to see if you completed within 90 days.

If you’re taking a course for an insurance discount, it is more flexible. Certificate of Completions are valid for insurance discounts for up to 3 years. This can vary depending on your auto insurance provider.

So yes, a Certificate of Completion does expire whether you’re using it for a ticket dismissal or insurance purposes. For ticket dismissal purposes the expiration or validity will be based on your approval to take defensive driving. For auto insurance purposes it will expire after 3 years. Either way the Certificate of Completion expires. Your court will provide instructions on how to submit your Certificate.

We would like to remind customers that defensive driving offers serious benefits compared to the other options available when you get a ticket.
