Williamson County Defensive Driving

If you've recently received a ticket in Williamson County, whether in Round Rock, Georgetown, or another city, you may be able to have it dismissed by taking a defensive driving course (which the Williamson County Court refers to as a driving safety course). Here's what you need to know and how to start the process:

Start by making sure you are eligible to have the ticket dismissed. It is up to the Williamson County Court to determine whether you can take a driving safety course to dismiss the ticket. You must contact the Court to ask if your ticket is eligible for dismissal.

A ticket may be dismissed by completing a driving safety course in Williamson County if:

  • The alleged speed is not 25 mph or more above the posted speed limit or 95 miles per hour or more
  • The offense did not occur in a construction zone when workers were present
  • You have not used this option during the 12 months preceding the offense date and you are not in the process of using this option for another offense and that you have not completed a course which is not reflected on your driving record
  • You have a valid Texas Driver License, Permit or current Military I.D.
  • You provide the court with proof of financial responsibility (liability insurance) that complies with state law
  • You provide the court with a certified copy of your driving record from DPS which shows you have not received a dismissal under these terms within the last 12 months
  • You do not hold a Commercial Driving License

However, you may lose the right to ticket dismissal if you do not provide written notice of your desire to the Williamson County Court to do so PLUS a plea of guilty or no contest to the Court on or before the appearance date (as shown on your citation).
