What do I do if get a traffic ticket in Texas?

After getting a traffic ticket, you must decide how you will plead. You have three options: guilty, no contest or not guilty. The first two options require you to pay the ticket on or before your scheduled court appearance. If you decide to plead not guilty, learn more on how to fight your traffic ticket. No matter how you decide to plead, just be sure you do so by the date listed on your citation. Ignoring the traffic ticket could lead to a warrant for your arrest.

How can I get a TX traffic ticket dismissed?

In some cases, you can get a traffic ticket dismissed by passing a driving safety course. You must request permission from the county court to go this route, and then complete a state-approved course (online, in person or at home with a DVD). If you hold a Texas CDL or your speeding ticket was for traveling faster than 25 mph over the posted speed limit, taking the course to dismiss a ticket is NOT an option.

Can I take a driving safety or defensive driving course to reduce the number of TX driver’s license points on my driving record?

Your option to take a driving safety course AFTER getting a traffic ticket is up to the court. If the court grants you permission, you must pass a state-approved court by a certain date (usually within 90 days).
