To qualify for defensive driving you must not have taken the defensive driving course within the last twelve(12) months, have a valid Texas Driver's License and have liability insurance. Defensive driving may be taken for speeding tickets less than 25 miles over the limit. If you have a commercial driver’s license you are NOT eligible for the defensive driving course. Only the individual that received the ticket can request the defensive driving course.
