A Driving Safety Course (sometimes referred to as Defensive Driving) allows for Dismissal of a Citation if certain
requirements are met.
Upon successful completion of an approved Driving Safety Course, your case will be dismissed by the San Antonio Municipal Court Judge. The violation will not be reported to the Department of Public Safety.
In the event that all requirements are not returned to the San Antonio Municipal Court on or before the due date, your opportunity for ticket dismissal via a Driving Safety Course will be revoked. This could result in a conviction, which would then be reported to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
A DRIVING SAFETY COURSE WILL ONLY APPLY TO ONE COUNT ON A TICKET WITH MULTIPLE VIOLATIONS.
Once approved by the Judge, you must pay the Administrative Court Fee:
Once the court has received your request, we will respond to you within 24-48 business hours**. This response will include the exact fine amount you must send in and the due date. Once the court receives your check or money order via US Mail, the court will send you your Defensive Driving Packet via Email.
