About the Online Texas Defensive Driving Course

The Driver Training Associates (DTA) Program for Driver Improvement course is a 6-hour driving safety course that has been approved by the Texas Education Agency for the purpose of ticket dismissal and auto insurance discount. This fast, easy, convenient alternative to traditional classroom traffic school has been taken by millions of Texas drivers.

Taking this defensive driving course for ticket dismissal

If you wish to take the online defensive driving course in order to get a Texas traffic citation dismissed, you should notify the court that this is your intention. The court will then enter a judgment on your plea of no contest or guilty at the time the plea is made. You will be given 90 days to complete the course. DTA's online defensive driving course is accepted by all Texas counties and jurisdictions.

What to do after you complete the defensive driving course

After you complete the course, you will need to provide the court with a copy of 1) your completion certificate; and possibly 2) a certified copy of your driving record. To order a copy of your driving record, click here and follow the instructions on the page. Many courts will also require that you provide them with an affidavit stating that you were NOT already taking a defensive driving course when you made your request to the court, nor did you complete a defensive driving course in the 12 months before the date of your offense for another ticket dismissal.

About the Auto Insurance Discount

Most Texas drivers who take the defensive driving course can receive a discount of up to 10% on their automobile insurance premium. This discount applies even if you are taking your defensive driving course for ticket dismissal. The auto insurance discount remains in effect over a 3-year period. We suggest that you contact your automobile insurance provider before taking this defensive driving course to learn their procedures for obtaining your insurance discount.

Texas drivers may only take the defensive driving course for insurance discount purposes once every 36 months.

How you can get an additional 5% insurance discount

76[R] HB 3757 authorizes a mandatory 5% auto insurance discount for Texas drivers who complete a 6-hour DADAP course. If you have already received a 10% Texas insurance discount for completing a 32-hour drivers ed course or a 6-hour defensive driving course, you can take DADAP for an additional 5%, resulting in a total insurance discount of 15%. If your policy is $1,000 a year, your total insurance savings would be $450 over a 3-year period!
