Did the court tell you to bring your Texas driving record in with your certificate?
If so, there are now three ways to get it.
Get It by Mail
You can get from the court a form called Application for Copy of Driver Record. You can also get this from our instructors or print it from the Texas DPS Website. Complete this form, then mail it to the address given. The cost for requesting your form by mail is $10.
Get It Online
You can request your driving record be mailed to you from texas.gov.
Print It Yourself
Go through the same steps as making an online request.
- Go to texas.gov.
- Under the TOP SERVICES, click where it says Driver Records and fill out the form. (For ticket dismissal purposes, you’ll need driving record type 3a.)
- Pay $12 online and print the driving record for yourself before you log out. No fuss and no waiting.
There are companies that claim they’ll get your driving record for you for a fee, but they are simply going to this website and doing what you can do for yourself. Never pay more than $12 for your driving record.
But you will need a working printer and Acrobat Reader.
Sad to say, there are still some people around who charge huge fees for getting your driving record for you. Protect yourself from them and print it out for yourself.
Both mail or online requests can take some time, so don’t wait until the last minute to request your driving record!
