Defensive driving/traffic school may reduce charges/fines or court ordered
If you are a minor charged with Texas DUI, you will have to attend an alcohol awareness class as part of your sentence. You can look up a class near you by clicking here. As an adult, if you get charged with a Texas DWI the laws are written so that taking a defensive driving class is not an option. However, the prosecutor may agree to a plea bargain, which means that you agree not to fight the charges in exchange for being charged with a lesser crime, usually reckless driving. In that case, an online defensive driving class from Driving University could help reduce the amount of money you have to pay for insurance. A defensive driving course may also be ordered by the court as a condition of probation. If so, Driving University
can help you fulfill the Court's requirements on your own time, and in the comfort of your own home.
