Texas Education Agency (TEA) and Defensive Driving

texas leg up

The 2015 Legislative session recently passed legislation that moves the Defensive Driving and Driver Training programs from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR). As of July 15, 2015, the transition has begun. This will require different offices and locations for these programs.

This information will take time to filter out to all the Texas Courts and even longer to be reflected in their paperwork, forms and language used in each court. There will be an overlap of forms and notifications that refer to the driver safety program as TEA approved course and then possibly the TDLR approved programs but the purpose and function of approved Defensive Driving will stay the same and be accepted by all courts in Texas to dismiss your moving violation.

The physical move of offices to the TDLR should be completed by September 1, 2015 or shortly thereafter but whether the courts refer to defensive driving as TEA approved or TDLR approved could take much more time to complete.

Rest assured that during this transition, is approved for all courts in Texas to get your ticket dismissed.

We will update you as things change and help assist you with defensive driving needs.
