Q: Can I Download My Defensive Driving Certificate of Completion in Texas?

A: Yes, you can now download and print your defensive driving Certificate of Completion in Texas as of November 1st 2018.

 

Up until this point, drivers in Texas only had the option to be sent a physical Certificate of Completion to provide the court for their traffic ticket dismissal. The new law and rule allows defensive driving Certificates of Completion to be downloaded instantly as soon as you finish the course.

In Texas, Defensive Driving courses are regulated by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR). The TLDR is responsible for granting licenses and overseeing defensive driving courses. Texas still requires the course to be a minimum of 6-hours in length, teach specific material, and cost a minimum of $25. This information, including the rule about the electronic certificate can be found on the TDLR website Driver Law Sec. 1001.206-(7) “Requirements for Course Provider License”.

This new download option does not mean that you can show the judge or court clerk your Certificate of Completion on your phone, but it does allow for your Certificate of Completion to be downloaded and printed to take with you when you go to court. The option to receive a physical Certificate of Completion is still available.

This new law and rule greatly speeds up the process of receiving your Certificate of Completion, which previously had to be sent physically to the student upon completion of the course. This meant that the fastest way to get your certificate was Overnight mail, so you would not receive it on the same day. With this new law and rule in place, you only need to take a 6 hour (minimum legally required amount of time) course, and you can instantly print your Certificate of Completion immediately after you complete the course.

DefensiveDriving.com has been approved by the TDLR to offer the instant Certificate of Completion download option. We’re trusted and approved by all courts in the state of Texas for ticket dismissal. Register to take a class at DefensiveDriving.com and instantly download your Certificate of Completion when you finish the course!
