If you are charged with a traffic offense under the Subtitle C, Transportation Code, you may request, before your appearance date, either by mail or in person.

At the time of the request, in person, you must do the following:

1. The Defendant requests DSC no later than 20 business days after receiving a citation .
2. Has not taken a driving safety course or motorcycle operator's training course within the 12
    months preceding the date of this offense.
3. The Defendant files with the Court a signed affidavit complying with
    all eligibility requirements for DSC as set forth in the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure,     
    §45.0511(c)(3).
4. The Defendant provides proof of financial responsibility, pursuant to the Texas
    Transportation Code, valid and in force as of the date the Defendant requests a DSC with
    the Court.
5. The Defendant presents a valid Texas Driver’s License or active duty military ID.
6. The Defendant pays the Court Costs and administrative fees, $109.00 (regular zone) or 
    $134.00 (school zone). (no personal or business checks are accepted)

When you appear in person the appropriate documentation will be filled out and a copy will be given to you.

By Mail

If you would like to make your request by mail in writing, then complete the request form and send it to the clerks office. It is your responsibility to contact the Court to verify that we received your request. Once the court processes the request, a formal driving safety course packet will be mailed to the address you provided on the form.

Compliance

If you complete and submit a uniformed certificate of a driving safety course and a certified driving record from DPS (Form 3A) NO LATER THAN your 90 days, the charge against you will be dismissed.

Failure to Comply

If you fail to present to this court, your proof of a uniformed certificate of a driving safety course and a certified driving record within the 90 days, the court will require your appearance at a show cause hearing that will be mailed to you at the last known address the court has on file or you may pay the balance owed but it will then result as a conviction on my driving record.
 
If you fail to appear at the show cause hearing, the court will impose the fine, enter a conviction and a capias pro-fine warrant will be issued for your arrest without further notice.
