Driving Safety Course
Pursuant to Chapter 45 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, a defendant may complete a driving safety course in lieu of paying the fines on offenses involving the operation of a motor vehicle. However, the completion of a driving safety course is not allowed for defendants who hold a commercial vehicle driver’s license.
Defendants issued a citation while operating a motorcycle qualify for deferred disposition if they successfully complete a motorcycle operator training course. Also, defendants issued a citation for failing to wear a seat belt or for a passenger or child not in a safety seat/seat belt can also complete a seat belt safety course to have a citation omitted from their driving record.
Do not take a driving safety course without first obtaining permission from the court.
