Somervell County Texas Defensive Driving Information

Somervell Texas Traffic Violations

Without question, the best way to avoid the problems that come with a traffic ticket is simply to avoid violating the traffic laws.  Unfortunately, that is not always the situation we find ourselves in.  if you are pulled over in Somervell Texas for violating a traffic law, you can expect to become the proud recipient of a traffic violation, courtesy of your Somervell Texas law enforcement.

The citation you receive will have several pieces of important information on it.  First, it will provide you with a court date.  You will need this date in the event you wish to attend a Texas Education Agency (TEA) approved Somervell Texas defensive driving course, dispute the ticket or if your violation is serious enough in nature that you are required to appear in court.  Also, if you are under 18, Texas law will usually require you to appear in court with your parents or legal guardian.

Second, the citation will provide you with contact information for the Somervell Texas court handling your traffic violation.  No matter how you plan to handle your citation, you must call the Somervell Texas court within ten days of being issued the citation, or risk heavier fines and penalties.  If you fail to call or show up in person to the Somervell Texas court for long enough, a bench warrant will be put out for your arrest.  Do not let this happen.  Contact the Somervell Texas court stated on your ticket immediately after being issued a citation.

When you contact the Somervell Texas court, you will also find out how to pay your citation.  Counties differ within Texas so you should ask the Somervell Texas court handling your ticket what payment methods are available and if you are eligible to attend a Somervell Texas ticket dismissal course such as GetDefensive.com.

Somervell Texas Driver Responsibility Program

A fine is not all that comes along with your newly issued citation.  The state of Texas also operates the Driver Responsibility Program ("DRP").  The DRP is a monitoring program designed to track your Texas driving record and identify problem drivers based on their traffic history.

The DRP uses a relatively straightforward formula for assessing points against your TX driver record.  First, safety belt violations and violations for speeding less than 10% over the posted speed limit results in no additional points on your driving record.  Otherwise, all traffic violations result in two points being added to your record.  If the violation also caused an accident, you will receive a third point.

These points will appear on your Texas driver record if you are issued a citation outside the state of Texas as well, based on the same formula, as other states will notify the Texas Department of Public Safety, which oversees the DRP.

If your violation is severe, such as for driving under the influence, driving without a valid license or violating state automobile insurance mandates, the Department of Public Safety (DPS)will also levy on your annual fines, known as Conviction Based Surcharges.  These fines are significant (reaching as high as $2,000) and are imposed not once, but annually for each year the offense remains on your record-- a maximum of three years.  While it may be convenient to drive without a Texas driver license or a cheap solution to avoid car insurance payments, it is simply not worth it to have to pay in excess of $5,000 over several years, in addition to the initial violation fines, court costs and likely the cost to have your Texas driving privileges reinstated.

Suspension of Texas Driving Privileges

The points you accumulate through the Texas Driver Responsibility Program add up quickly.  If you incur just six points in three years-- one traffic violation per year-- the Texas Department of Public Safety will suspend your Texas driving privileges.  You can also face suspension if you avoid tallying too many points but are labeled as a "habitual offender."  Somervell Texas drivers who incur four violations in two years or 7 in four years are considered habitual offenders by the state of Texas and face suspension of their Texas driving privileges.  If you are a juvenile driver under 18 years of age, your driving privileges can be revoked for just two traffic violations in a single year.  The violations counting toward a habitual offender moniker, just like points accumulation, include all out of state offenses that would have qualified had they been issued in Somervell Texas.

The cost of having your driving privileges reinstated can be hefty and will pile on top of the fines for your most recent violation as well as the costs of appearing in court to defend yourself.  It is in your best interest and the best interests of your wallet that you avoid accumulating traffic violations on your Texas driver record.

Somervell Texas Defensive Driving Programs

Should you find yourself in any of the precarious situations above, a Somervell Texas defensive driving program may be able to help you avoid the unfortunate consequences.  The Texas Education Agency allows Somervell Texas drivers to attend a Somervell Texas driver safety program, including the Somervell Texas online defensive driving courses offered by Getdefensive.com, in order to have up to one traffic violation per year expunged from their Texas Department of Public Safety driving record.  In order to receive this benefit, however, you must first receive permission from the Somervell Texas court handling your violation when you call in or appear in court.  This permission is not guaranteed, however, and will likely be based on the cleanliness of your Texas driving record to date, as well as the severity of your most recent violation.  Also, if you have taken ten defensive driving programs and are back for your eleventh, a Somervell Texas court may feel that you need a different form of rehabilitation in order to improve your safe driving habits.

However, most often you will be given an opportunity to have the violation removed from your Texas driver record.  If you are given such an opportunity, a Somervell Texas internet driver safety or Somervell Texas internet driver improvement program will not only remove the violation from your record, but will also eliminate the points that would have attached to your record as a result of your guilty plea or conviction.  These benefits come in addition to the considerable costs you will avoid by not being labeled a habitual offender or having your Texas drivers license temporarily suspended.

Somervell Texas Insurance Discounts

A Somervell Texas driver has much to gain by keeping a clean driving record through participation in a Somervell Texas online driver safety program such as those offered by Getdefensive.com, beyond simply avoiding a suspended license.  Online Somervell Texas defensive driving programs teach valuable safe driving techniques and foster defensive driving habits that will help you avoid your next traffic violation.  Additionally, in the event you find yourself incurring a traffic violation in the future, a Somervell Texas court is much more likely to offer you a chance to have that violation wiped when your Texas driver record is clean and you have shown yourself to be committed to safe driving by enrolling in a Somervell Texas online defensive driving program like Getdefensive.comGetdefensive.com offers many forms of home-study Texas defensive driving courses, including Somervell Texas online defensive driving, Somervell Texas DVD video defensive driving and Somervell Texas streaming video defensive driving which can be viewed on your home computer.

A clean Texas driving record also keep you eligible for up to a 10% insurance reduction.  Insurance providers base the premiums you pay on your Somervell Texas driving experience and your history of traffic violation.  Texas law protects you as an insurance owner from having your rates raised each time you pay a traffic ticket.  However, Somervell Texas insurance carriers are not entitled to cover you if you show yourself to be a habitually bad driver.  Also, after three citations you insurance carrier is allowed by law to cancel your coverage immediately.  If that happens, it is highly unlikely that your next carrier will offer you a low or moderate price.  Keeping your driving record clean and having the experience of completing a Somervell Texas online defensive driving program will help you avoid costly hikes in your insurance coverage.

Somervell Texas Mature Driver and Somervell Texas Juvenile Driver Insurance Discounts

Somervell Texas drivers over the age of 55 and juvenile drivers under the age of 18 have an added incentive to enroll in a Somervell Texas online defensive driving program:  insurance discounts.  To promote safe driving, most auto insurers provide additional discounts to both older and younger Texas drivers.  If you are a driver under the age of 18 or a parents of a juvenile driver, or you are a mature driver of the age of 55, contact your auto insurance provider to find out if an online driver safety program will help you secure an insurance reduction even before any accident or traffic violation has occurred.  This active approach may not just result in lower premiums now, but help keep them low in the event of a future traffic citation.

Somervell Texas Classroom Driver Safety Schools

Some people prefer learning in a traditional classroom setting to the ease of taking a Somervell Texas defensive driving program from the comfort of their own home.  If you would like to participate in a driver safety program to help lower your  insurance costs, to remove a traffic violation from your Texas driving record or because you were ordered to do so by a Somervell Texas court, you should ask the Somervell Texas court overseeing your citation and they will be happy to provide you with a list of brick and mortar traffic schools  in and around Somervell Texas when you call into discuss your citation.

Customer Reviews

This Texas online defensive driving course is very informational. A great refresher course. I believe all drivers should be required to take the course by Texas state law. It would help drastically in the region I live in. It's very clear most drivers don't understand the etiquette and laws of the road.

-"J. Drube"

-"J. Gomez"

Despite not looking forward to taking the Texas Online Defensive Driving Course I actually found it to be easy and quick. Thanks for making the process so easy. I am not so great with computers as I am from a different generation LOL but the whole process was very simple, which is more than I can say for other website programs I have used.

Why is the Somervell Texas traffic court telling me I’m not eligible to take GetDefensive.com’s Somervell Texas defensive driving online course to have a ticket for a minor infraction dismissed?

One possible reason is that the ticket itself may not be dismissible due to the nature of the infraction. The other possibility is that Somervell Texas law only allows you to have one (1) ticket dismissed within a twelve (12) month period. If you’ve had a prior ticket dismissed within the past one (1) year, you would not be eligible to have another ticket dismissed by taking GetDefensive.com’s Somervell Texas online defensive driving course.

No.  The laws in Somervell Texas only permit a defendant to dismiss one (1) traffic ticket/citation a year (meaning a 12-month period, not a calendar year) by taking a Texas Education Agency-approved defensive driving or driver safety class.  If you've already taken a defensive driving class within the past 12 months or are uncertain when and if you have taken a defensive driving class, we suggest you obtain a copy of your Texas Driver Record or ask the Somervell Texas traffic court if you are currently eligible to have a ticket dismissed.  If you are eligible, you may register to take the GetDefensive.com Somervell Texas defensive driving/driver safety/ticket dismissal class to have a single ticket dismissed, but no more than one (1) ticket can be dismissed by taking our class.
