DRIVING SAFETY COURSE

You MAY be able to request that this charge be dismissed by taking a Driving Safety Course for speeding or stop sign violations if you appear in person or if you send by certified or regular mail the completed form on the back and:

1. Enter a plea of “guilty” or “no contest” to the charge, and mark the line to request to take the course;

2. Mail in fee of $109.10 with a check/money order made payable to “The City of Hill Country Village”.

3. Mail in a photocopy of your valid Texas driver license and liability insurance in your name valid on the date of the ticket.

Once payment is received, the Court will mail you the necessary forms.

Driving Safety Course cannot be taken to dismiss the charge if the defendant (ticket holder) has taken the course within the past twelve months, was speeding 25 mph or more over the speed limit, or holds a Commercial driver license.

Do NOT take course prior to Court approval. If you fail to request a Driving Safety Course on or before your appearance date, you lose your right to take the course. Use form on other side.

Once permission is granted, the course must be completed within 90 days. Send the Court the ‘Uniform Certificate of Completion’ (signed Court copy) and your driving record, obtainable from DPS for $10. The Court will supply this form, or you may visit www.txdps.state.tx.us.
