What's in your Texas Driver Record?
Like many other states, Texas law requires that a record be kept of every accident report and court record for each driver. In Texas, this record is your driving record. Every time you are involved in a crash or get ticketed for a moving violation, it goes on your record.
Have you noticed yet
Tickets that are dismissed by taking a state-approved driving safety course should NOT show on your record.
The record will show that you took a defensive driving course but not the ticket.
If an insurance company or potential employer needs to see your driving record they can request a copy. And increasingly courts are requesting that people submit copies of their record when they want to have a ticket dismissed to show that they have not had another ticket dismissed in less than twelve months.
Types of Texas Driver Records
In Texas, there are various types of driving records, all containing different versions of your information. Type 1, for example, simply shows your name, birthdate, most recent address, and whether or not your driver license is currently valid.
For ticket dismissal purposes, you'll need to get Type 3A. This will show all the same information as Type 1 PLUS all accidents and convictions you've incurred while driving in Texas.
