Texas Defensive Driving Information

Hartley Texas Traffic Violations

If you are pulled over in Hartley Texas for a traffic violation, a Hartley Texas law enforcement officer will likely issue you a citation.  On your citation you will find contact information for the Hartley Texas court overseeing your traffic violation.  Whether you would like to protest the violation in court or simply pay your fine, you must contact the Hartley Texas court and disclose your decision within ten day of being issued your citation, or risk heavier fines and other penalties.  Should you choose to simply pay the fine, the Hartley Texas court will be able to tell you over the phone what payment methods you can use, as each Texas county differs with regard to credit cards, cash and other forms of accepted payment.  In some case, if your violation is severe or you are under the age of 18, the Hartley Texas court may inform you that your appearance in court is required.  In that event, your court date will likely be on the citation.  If not, ask the court when you phone in.

Hartley Texas Driver Responsibility Program

If you are found guilty or plead guilty to a traffic violation, including if you simply pay the fine, you are likely to receive points against your Texas driving record based on the Texas Responsibility Program.  While some violation, such as speeding by less than ten percent of the posted speed limit, are exempt from point accumulation, nearly all other violations follow a simple formula.  If you have incurred a traffic citation for a violation, the Texas Department of Public Safety will assess two points against your driving record.  If your violation has resulted in an accident, three points are attached to your Texas driver record.  These points will also be attached if you obtain a citation in another state that would have resulted in points being placed on your record had it been received in Texas.

In addition, if your violation is for driving under the influence, failing to obtain proper insurance driving without a proper license, you are likely to be subject to annual fines, called, "Conviction Based Surcharges," for each of the three years the offense remains on your driving record.  Thus, if you are pulled over and are found to be driving without insurance, you will be fined three times for the single offense, in addition to points being assessed against your Texas driving record.

Suspension of Texas Driving Privileges

Once you have amassed six points on your record within a three year timeframe, the Texas Department of Public Safety will suspend your Texas driving privileges.  Even if you have managed to avoid the point accumulation but have obtained four traffic violations in a year, or seven in two years, your Texas driving privileges will also be suspended.  if you are a juvenile driver unrer the age of 18, just two traffic violations in one year will result in a temporary suspension of yoru Texas driving privileges.  Again, these violations will include any citations you received outside the state.

In addition to the costs of living without your driving privileges, the court fees and possible Conviction Based Surcharged that go along with certain traffic citations on your Texas driver record, you are likely to incur significant fines associated with getting your license reinstated.  It is in your best interest and the best interests of your pocketbook that you avoid accumulating traffic violations on your Texas driver record.

Hartley Texas Defensive Driving Programs

Thankfully, the Texas Education Agency allows Hartley Texas drivers to attend a driver safety program, including online defensive driving programs such as those offered by Getdefensive.com, in order to have as much as one ticker per year removed from their Texas Department of Public Safety driving record.  In order to receive this beneficial treatment, you must obtain permission from the Hartley Texas court overseeing your violation.  The Hartley Texas court's approval will depend on factors such as the amount of tickets already on your driving record and the number of times you have already attended driver safety school or participated in a defensive driving program.  If it appears you have not learned enough from traffic school to be a safe driver after several times, a Hartley Texas court may deprive you of another opportunity.  Further, if your offense is of an extreme nature, such as leaving the scene of an accident, a court will likely not grant you this privilege.

If you are given such an opportunity, however, a Hartley Texas online defensive driving program will remove the underlying offense from your Texas driving record, not only preventing you from accumulating points that could result in your license being suspended, but also preventing possible redundant conviction surcharges and the costs of getting your driving privileges reinstated.

Hartley Texas Insurance Discounts

Avoiding points on your driving record and a potential suspension of your driving privileges are not the only benefits you will receive from participating in a Hartley Texas online driver safety program through Getdefensive.com. By participating in an online defensive driving program, you will learn valuable safe driving skills that will help you avoid costly accidents and traffic violations in the future.  Also, the cleaner you keep your Texas driving record, the more likely a Hartley Texas court will be willing to offer you lenient alternatives in the event you should find yourself involved in a future incident.

Finally, your Texas driving record has a significant impact on your insurance costs.  Each traffic violation incurred is forwarded to insurance providers, who commonly raise insurance premiums for unsafe drivers.  While Texas law protects the insured from having their rates raised simply for paying a traffic citation, after three citations your insurance can be cancelled and your chances for finding a new insurer that will charge you similar premiums is very small.  It is better that you actively keep your driving record as clean as possible to avoid these unfortunate consequences.

Hartley Texas Mature Driver and Hartley Texas Juvenile Driver Insurance Discounts

In addition to keeping your insurance premiums low, many auto insurers provide discounts for safe drivers.  One way to show a safe driving record is to participate in Getdefensive.com's online defensive driving program.  For Hartley Texas drivers over the age of 55 and drivers under the age of 18, many auto insurers provide additional insurance reductions, specifically to promote safe driving techniques and defensive driving skills in drivers who are statistically more likely to commit traffic violations.  If you are a mature driver of the age of 55, a juvenile driver under the age of 18 or a parent of a juvenile driver, you should reach out to your auto insurance provider to find out if an online driver safety program will help you secure insurance discounts, in addition to helping you learn defensive driving techniques that will allow you to avoid accidents or violations in the future.

Hartley Texas Classroom Traffic Schools

Getdefensive.com offers many forms of home-study Texas defensive driving course, including Hartley Texas online defensive driving, Hartley Texas DVD video defensive driving and Hartley Texas streaming video defensive driving which can be viewed on your home computer.  All of these will help you obtain insurance reductions, ensure ticket dismissals, and have points removed from your Texas driving record.

However, some people feel more comfortable learning in a traditional classroom setting than taking a driver safety program from the comfort of their own home.  If you would like to participate in a defensive driving program to help lower your insurance costs, secure a ticket dismissal from your Texas driving record or because you were ordered to do so by a Hartley Texas court, you should ask the Hartley 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 Hartley Texas when you call in to discuss your citation.

I’m trying to dismiss a traffic citation I received. Is the internet GetDefensive.com defensive driving course approved?

Yes, our internet defensive driving course is fully approved by the Texas Education Agency (TEA).  As a TEA approved defensive driving provider, GetDefensive.com should therefore be accepted by the Hartley Texas Court.

How do I know I'm eligible to attend a GetDefensive.com defensive driving course online to dismiss a ticket?

The Hartley Texas Court will notify you as to whether your citation is eligible for dismissal through the attendance of a Texas Education Agency approved internet driver safety course.   As long as you haven't attended a Texas online defensive driving course in the past 12 months, you should be eligible to attend but if you are uncertain we recommend that you check with your court.

I’m just a few days away from my Justice of the Hartley Texascourt due date. What’s the fastest that I can finish the GetDefensive.com online defensive driving course and get my certificate?

You’re in luck, because we’ve had students finish the GetDefensive.com online defensive driving course in just one day (it’s a 6 hour course) and get their certificate delivered the following business day through FedEx (if you complete the course before our FedEx cutoff time of 6PM CST)!  However, if your GetDefensive.com ticket due date is in less than 24 hours you should definitely ask for an extension.

GetDefensive.com is fully approved by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) as a provider of Texas internet defensive driving for purposes of ticket dismissal and insurance reduction. Every court in Texas accepts our GetDefensive.com online defensive driving course as a means of citation dismissal, because our approval is statewide. If you plan to attend a GetDefensive.com defensive driving class as a fulfillment of your sentencing or probation, and not to dismiss a ticket, you should first check with the Justice of the Hartley Texas Judge to make sure he or she will accept GetDefensive.com.

What's the difference between a GetDefensive.com online traffic school course and a GetDefensive.com traffic school classroom course?

A normal GetDefensive.com traffic school class forces you to drive to a physical location, park and sit through a lecture about driving laws and GetDefensive.com driver improvement.   A GetDefensive.com online defensive driving class allows you to learn the same driver safety information from the comfort of home.  GetDefensive.com offers internet defensive driving, DVD defensive driving and GetDefensive.com streaming video defensive driving.

Is using the GetDefensive.com internet defensive driving course to dismiss more than one ticket something that’s permitted?

No.  Texas state law does not allow you to take defensive driving to dismiss more than one traffic ticket within a 12 month period.
