Eligibility for DSC is based on several factors including the violation, your age, and your ability to meet the requirements. If you meet the requirements below, you will be required to upload a copy of your valid Texas driver’s license and current insurance. If you do not meet the requirements or are not eligible to complete the request online, this option will not be available to you through this site. You may be eligible to request DSC in person, by mail, or email. You may contact the Court to inquire about eligibility or for other options.
Requirements for requesting DSC:
To begin the process for requesting DSC:
No Exceptions! These laws are statutory and cannot be ignored or altered.
If you meet all of the above requirements submit to the Ingram Municipal Court the following:
After sending to the Ingram Municipal Court all that the court requires, immediately send a copy of the form DR-1 (Application for Copy of Driver Record) with $10.00 to the address on the form. This will prove you are qualified concerning your driving record.
Mail the DR-1 and $10.00 to:
Texas Department of Public Safety
P.O. Box 149008
Austin, Texas 78714-9008
*Make the money order payable to: Texas Department of Public Safety
Once you have taken the course you will be awarded a certificate. Take the copy marked "Court" and mail it to 230 Hwy 39, Ingram TX 78025. You should retain your copy and may use the insurance copy in a manner appropriate to you.
You have 90 days (no extensions!) to submit to the Court the certificate awarded you upon completion of the course. This time is counted from the date we receive your written request to take the course. If you do not complete the course and submit the certificate within the 90 days allowed, you will most likely lose your privilege to take the course. (You cannot take a drivers safety course if your ticket is fro a school zone.)
- You are entitled to a trial in Ingram Municipal Court in the same manner as any other court. You must download the response sheet and plea "Not Guilty". This option is only for you to tell us that you want a trial.
- You are entitled to a trial by a six-member jury. Your request for a jury trial will be processed rapidly and you should expect notice of the trial setting very shortly. There may be a pretrial date set so that pretrial motions can be processed before the date of the trial.
- You may have your case heard before the judge. The notice of Court date will be mailed to the address you provide either on the ticket or on the reply form you submit with your plea.
If you need counsel to determine your best course in replying to the traffic summons you have been issued, you should seek out and obtain qualified legal counsel. We will not be legally or ethically able to assist you.
First look over options two and three. (Again if necessary)
In extreme situations, there may be a remedy called a "Deferred Disposition under Chapter 45, Article 45.051 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure". It involves some very extenuating circumstances that the Court cannot talk about EX-PARTE [or without both parties (The Defendant and the State's Attorney) being together at the same time.]
A Driving Safety Course is a deferred disposition now. Check out Option two for more information.
