Not only are they available for traffic ticket dismissal, but our courses are also approved to provide insurance rate discounts (a standard discount of 10%). As an example, if you pay $1,000 a year for insurance, your savings could be $300 (your reduction is good for 3 years). And, taking it to reduce your insurance rates, does not keep you from taking it for ticket dismissal.

Unfortunately no. The course is only offered in English.

Ask the court where you got your ticket – the court may allow you to take a course from the state you reside in if they feel that the 6 hour Texas Online Course will fulfill their requirements.

Texas state law allows you to dismiss only 1 traffic ticket every 12 months, but this is a bit of a grey law, and judges can allow this, so ask the court if you can dismiss your ticket by taking defensive driving – the worst they can do is say no.

Speeding, running a red light/sign, driving without a license, not wearing a seatbelt, and driving while using a mobile device are several examples of traffic violations you can dismiss.
