Driving Safety Course (DSC)
This option only applies to certain violations. Choosing this option will allow you 90 days to complete the course and request a certified copy of your driving record from the Department of Public Safety in Austin. You can prevent the citation from going on your driving record by successfully completing this course. The violation for which you have been charged can be dismissed, if you qualify. For further information, see the Driving Safety Course section.
Deferred Disposition (Probation)
This is another method for you to have your violation dismissed to prevent the offense from appearing on your driving or criminal record. The deferral period is 180 days. You are required to pay the state court costs and post a cash bond in the amount of the special expense fee at the time of your request. You also may be required to take a driving safety course as a condition of your deferred disposition. Deferred disposition is similar to DSC in that it is only granted once a year to have a violation dismissed. You must complete and submit a
Notarized Affidavit of Deferred Disposition
by your initial appearance date: in person or by mail.
If you hold a Commercial Drivers License, you are not eligible for deferred disposition.
State law prohibits the deferred disposition option if a violation occurs in a construction zone when workers are present.
Request a Trial
plead Not Guilty
and request a trial. You have the right to a jury trial or you can waive that right have your case heard before a judge.
