YOU ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE A CERTIFIED COPY OF YOUR DRIVING RECORD IF YOU ARE REQUESTING DEFENSIVE DRIVING. If the DPS website is down for maintenance WHEN ORDERING ONLINE, you can mail in the request for your driving record using the application below:
The Driver Responsibility Program establishes a system that authorizes the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to assess surcharges to an individual based on certain traffic offenses that have occurred on or after September 1, 2003. Individuals are notified by mail each time a surcharge is added to their driver record. Surcharges are in addition to other fees and do not replace a suspension, revocation, denial, disqualification or cancellation resulting from the same conviction.
