Enrollment Requirements for Harris County Defensive Driving

In order to be eligible to have your ticket dismissed, you must have your court's permission to attend a defensive driving program. Contact the court shown on your traffic ticket to request permission and make arrangements to pay your fine. You must contact your court and request to attend the course on or before your appearance date. You should note that taking a defensive driving course does not mean that you won't have to pay the fine for your ticket. The purpose of defensive driving is to keep the points from your traffic violation off of your driving record, though you will save money in the long run by avoiding insurance increases.

In Harris county, you will most likely be allowed to take the course for minor traffic violations, however there are some specific requirements:

  • You may only take a defensive driving course for ticket dismissal once every 12 months
  • You cannot attend defensive driving for ticket dismissal if you hold a commercial drivers license (CDL)
  • You must have proof of financial responsibility (liability insurance)

The following violations are considered too severe to be eligible for dismissal by taking a driving safety course:

  • Passing a stopped school bus
  • Failing to stop and give information or render aid following an accident, or on striking an unattended vehicle or object
  • A traffic offense committed in a construction and maintenance work zone while workers were present
  • Speeding 95 miles per hour or more
  • Speeding 25 miles per hour or more over the posted speed limit
