Texas Driver Responsibility Program Repealed

Texas, MapYou gotta love Texas!

From passing a law making children’s lemonade stands legal to banning red light ticket cameras to repealing those nasty traffic ticket surcharges imposed on more than 1.3 million Texas drivers.

Texas drivers win again!!

Effective September 1, 2019, the State of Texas has repealed the Driver Responsibility Program – Chapter 708, Transportation Code. Effective September 1, 2019, all DRP surcharge suspensions have been lifted.

The Department of Public Safety has reinstated all driver privileges that were previously suspended solely for having unpaid surcharges.

If your license was suspended for other offenses, you may check the status of your driver license and determine any reinstatement requirements by visiting our License Eligibility Page.

Additional information on the repeal of the program may be found at Driver Responsibility Program (Surcharge) Repeal FAQs.
