How to Dismiss a Texas Speeding Ticket
The first question that comes into your mind when you were pulled over for speeding is probably, “How am I going to get out of this?” The good news is that there are options available to get the ticket dismissed. One available option, upon approval of the court, is to take a driving safety course.
You will not be eligible for the course if you:
- Received a speeding ticket for more than 25 mph over the speed limit
- Hold a Texas Commercial Driver’s license
- Have dismissed a traffic ticket in the past 12 months
- Have pled “not guilty” – you must plead “no contest”
Upon successful completion of the course and submittal of your Certificate of Completion to the court, the points will be removed from your license.
If you are ineligible for the driving course, contact our experienced criminal lawyer to learn about other defense options that may be available to you.
How the Texas Point System Could Affect You
Fines and penalties for speeding tickets in Texas vary from county to county. The one element that is constant for speeding tickets throughout all of Texas is the point system. A speeding ticket will always put two points on your record.
An accumulation of points on your record can result in:
- Higher auto insurance rates
- An additional fine known as a surcharge
- Suspension of a driver’s license
You know better than anyone that it is crucial for you not to lose your driver’s license. In order to prevent license suspension, you must not be convicted of four or more traffic tickets in a 12-month period or seven or more tickets in a 24-month period. In the event that your license is suspended, prior to license reinstatement you will need to meet all the court-ordered obligations.
These obligations may include:
- Refraining from driving for the set amount of time
- Paying a reinstatement fee
- Taking a defensive driving course
- Submitting a compliance document
