Brazos County Defensive Driving

If you've recently received a ticket in Brazos County, whether in College Station, Bryan, or another city, you may be able to have it dismissed by taking a defensive driving course (which is also referred to as a driving safety course). Here's what you need to know and how to start the process:

First, make sure you are eligible to have the ticket dismissed. It is up to the Brazos County to determine whether you can take a defensive driving course/driver safety course to dismiss the ticket. You must contact the Court to ask if your ticket is eligible for dismissal. If the court approves you to take a course, you are eligible to take our 100% online, easy and simple Texas Defensive Driving course.

You may be able to have your ticket dismissed in Brazos County by successfully completing a driving safety course. You will lose that right if, on or before your appearance date, you do not provide the court with notice of your request to take the course.

A charge may be dismissed by completing a driving safety course if:

  1. You submit your application for the driving safety course and it is approved by the Court.
  2. You are charged with a moving traffic violation other than 25 mph or more above the posted speed limit, or a speed of 95 mph or higher, passing a school bus, construction zone violations with workers present, or certain offenses involving traffic accidents.
  3. You have not completed an approved driving safety course in this state or another state during the 12 months immediately preceding the date of your ticket.
  4. You have a valid Texas Driver License other than a Commercial Driver License and you provide the court a copy.
  5. You provide the court with proof of liability insurance that complies with state law.
  6. You pay the court costs of the ticket ($112.00) in the form of a cashier's check or money order made out to Brazos County.

After the Court receives items requested in lines #1, #4, #5, and #6, due on or before your appearance date written on your ticket, you will be given 90 days to complete the following:
