One of the most important documents that the state of Texas has on
file about you is your Texas driving record. Your driving record can
affect your insurance rates, your ability to get insurance coverage,
and even your ability to get certain jobs. Because of this, you
should review it for accuracy periodically, just like you should review
your credit report-especially if you plan on changing jobs or looking
for new insurance coverage in the near future!
However, probably the most common reason that you would need to request
a copy of your Texas driving record is to take to court with you if get
a traffic ticket and would like to have it dismissed through defensive
driving. In many cases, you are required to submit a copy of your Texas
driving record along with your certificate of course completion from
defensive driving school.
