The Texas Drug and Alcohol Driving Awareness Program (DADAP) offered by Ticket School is a 6-hour drug and alcohol awareness course that is approved by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR). Our course is offered 100% online and is a great alternative to traditional classroom-based DADAP or alcohol awareness courses. In fact Ticket School’s Texas DADAP is the first online Texas DADAP course offered in the state!

The Texas DADAP for Judge or Court Orders

The Texas DADAP is often taken as part of a court order for a variety of different drug or alcohol related offenses. These offenses are specified under the following Texas Penal Codes: Section 49.02, Section 106.02, Section 106.025, Section 106.04, Section 106.041, Section 106.05, and Section 106.07. The offenses covered under these penal codes that may require the offender to take the Texas DADAP include the following:

  • Misrepresentation of age by a minor
  • Possession of alcohol by a minor (MIP)
  • Attempted purchase alcohol by a minor
  • Purchase of alcohol by a minor
  • Consumption of alcohol by a minor
  • Driving or operating watercraft under the influence of alcohol by a minor

Section 469.007 of the Texas Health & Safety Code also authorizes courts and justices of the peace in Texas to order Texas DADAP course for various other alcohol and drug-related offenses. If you have been ordered by a Texas court or judge to attend a 6-hour alcohol or drug awareness program, there is a good chance that Ticket School’s fully online Texas DADAP will qualify. However before you enroll in the course please check with the court or judge who issued the order to ensure that this course qualifies for your offense.

The Texas DADAP to Qualify for an Insurance Discount

Ticket School’s Texas DADAP course is fully approved by the TDLR and is designed to educate drivers about the dangers of intoxicated driving while also promoting safer driving behavior in general. Because this helps reduce collisions and increase driver safety, some auto insurance providers offer an auto insurance discount to encourage policyholders to take the course. This discount is a great way to save money on your insurance premiums while also learning important safety information. However, before enrolling in the Texas DADAP please check with your insurance provider to determine whether or not they offer this discount and whether or not you are eligible for it.

The Texas DADAP for Continuing Education

In addition to court orders or for insurance discounts, some Texas drivers may take Ticket School’s Texas DADAP in order to complete a continuing education requirement. Some companies and organizations require employees who drive as part of their job responsibilities to take a state-approved Texas DADAP course as part of a continuing education program. Ticket School’s convenient, 100% online course makes it easy for busy men and women to meet these continuing education requirements and get the full benefit of this safety education with minimal disruption to their day-to-day lives.
