Keep Points off Your Driver Record

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Driver Safety For You & Your Family

Many Texans do not know that Texas has a point system under the Driver Responsibility Program. As a matter of fact, there are billions of dollars outstanding in penalties associated with the Driver Responsibility program in Texas. So, how does this affect you?

A surcharge is an administrative fee charged to a driver based on the convictions reported to the driving record.  In effect, when you receive a moving violation and opt to pay your ticket, the violation is added to your driver record. If there is an additional simple driving mistake and you may be assessed a surcharge.

There are two criteria that determine if a surcharge will be assessed.  Those two criteria are: Point System and Conviction Based surcharges. Let’s take a look at the Point System.

According to the Texas Driver Responsibility Act:

  1. Two (2) points for a Texas or out-of-state moving violation conviction. Moving violations are defined by 37 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §15.89.
  2. Three (3) points for a Texas or out-of-state moving violation conviction that resulted in a crash.

We are not always perfect drivers which may lead to a moving violation. Here is how you keep points off your driver record if you receive a moving violation:

  1. Elect to take an approved defensive driving course.

Electing to take an approved defensive driving course can be the easiest way to deal with a traffic citation. In many cases, you can make arrangements by phone, online or via mail.

2. Once you have your approval, register at www.DefensiveDriving.com.

DefensiveDriving.com is a Texas based course provider that makes taking a driver safety course, educational as well as entertaining.

3. Submit your Certificate to your court.

Sign the court copy of your Certificate and submit it to the court and you are done.
