Driver Safety Courses
You may request to have your citation dismissed by pleading "no contest" or "guilty", paying court costs of at least $114.10 and completing a driving safety course approved by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). The request for DSC must be made to the court on or before your appearance date.
If you meet the above requirements you may request to take a driving safety course before the court on or before your appearance date. Judicial approval is required after this time period. You may make this request in person at the Bridgeport Municipal Court or by sending a written document requesting approval for DSC and making a plea of "no contest" or "guilty" including a hand written signature on the request document. When mailing the request you will need to send a copy of your driver license and proof of financial responsibility along with $114.10 fee for DSC or $149.10 if your citation was in a school zone.
You should not take the course or request your driving record until you have received approval from the Municipal Court.
