  • Fast delivery of your certificate of completion via email if you’re in a hurry

Benefits of a Defensive Driving Course

Like New York State and many others, the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) has approved online defensive driving courses (a.k.a driver safety courses). Approved providers of the course may not charge less than $25 per state law, so you know you are getting the lowest possible price for the highest quality of online driver course with Ticket School.

The benefits of taking a defensive driving course with Ticket School include:

  • Short quizzes after each topic, with no final exam
  • Earning a car insurance discount from many providers
  • Having a qualifying ticket dismissed to keep the points off your driving record
  • Learning safer driving techniques that can help you avoid an accident

When you take the Texas defensive driving course online with Ticket School and turn in the certificate before the court-appointed deadline (assuming you have met all court requirements), your ticket will be dismissed. That means it keeps the court from reporting that ticket to the DPS to have it added to your driving record. Keeping  points off your driving record prevents the DPS from adding surcharges and potential license suspension penalties. Reducing points can also keep your car insurance company from raising your rates due to a traffic ticket.

Ticket School Is on Your Side

There are many options for online defensive driving courses, but, unlike some non-profit services like the National Safety Council and the American Safety Council, Ticket School offers a full range of services focused on helping drivers meet court deadlines and requirements for ticket dismissal.

After successful completion of your course, Ticket School’s Texas defensive driving certificate will be sent out electronically via email free of charge. Paper certificates can also be sent via U.S. mail (usually received within three to five business days) or by Express delivery (two days or overnight) for an additional fee.

We also offer a bundled service including ordering a copy of your Texas Driving Record from the Texas Department of Public Safety and Motor Vehicles, which is typically required for ticket dismissal. If the court requires you to bring a 3A Copy of your driving record with your defensive driving certificate, we have you covered. The driving record shows any violations and/or defensive driving courses you have taken in the last 18-month period.
