Driving Safety Courses
State law allows drivers licensed in Texas the opportunity to take a driving safety course (also known as DSC or “defensive driving”) once a year to dismiss certain types of traffic citations. You may take DSC if:
A DSC course can be requested by mail or in person at the Court. (By mail, send the DSC fee along with a copy of your driver’s license and your insurance to the Court at 611 Bluff Street, Wichita Falls, TX, 76301. Please be sure to include your citation number on any documents submitted to the Court.) After you have signed up, you will have 90 days to submit to the Court your DSC completion certificate and a certified copy of your driving record from DPS (Certified List of All Accidents and Violations in Record - Type 3A). You may order and print out a copy of your driving record from DPS by clicking HERE.
Failing to Comply with DSC Terms:
If you fail to comply with any of the requirements of the DSC, your case will be set for a show cause hearing. The hearing is your opportunity to speak with a judge regarding why you failed to comply with terms of your DSC. If you fail to appear at your hearing, a conviction will be entered, the conviction will be placed on your record, and, if there is still a balance on the case, a warrant for your arrest will be issued.
The Court staff will provide detailed information regarding these submissions to you when you sign up. Please call (940) 761-7880 with any questions.
