Ticket Dismissal and Insurance Reduction

Welcome to GetDefensive.com! Before getting started, please take a moment to read the following important information about this online Texas defensive driving course for ticket dismissal and insurance reduction.

Defensive Driving Approval Information

GetDefensive.com is approved by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) as a provider of online defensive driving. Our Course Provider number is CP021 and our School number C2084. You may view a copy of our approval license by clicking here.

Defensive Driving Course Information

This online Texas defensive driving class is divided into 12 chapters. Texas law requires that you spend a minimum of 6-hours taking a defensive driving course for ticket dismissal. Each lesson page is timed, and you are required to spend the minimum required time on each page before proceeding to the next page. Once you have completed an online chapter, you are required to pass a unit exam with a score of 70% or better. If you do not pass the unit exam, you will be required to repeat the failed unit. You may do this an unlimited number of times until you pass!

Defensive Driving Identity Verification

We are required to verify your identity before allowing you to take the final exam. We can do this in one of two ways: 1. if you have both a Texas driver's license and a vehicle registered in Texas, we can draw information from your TDLR and DOT records and use that information to ask you questions during the course, OR 2. You can submit a signed and notarized "Statement of Assurance." If you register for the course without entering your driver's license and vehicle information, thereby preventing us from asking you security questions during the course, you will be legally required to submit a Statement of Assurance if you have already completed at least 50% of the course. Therefore, please be sure to have your driver license and vehicle registration information handy during online registration.

Defensive Driving Certificate of Completion Information

We will send your certificate via regular US Mail free of charge or you can select any one of our expedited shipping methods available through Federal Express.
