  • Question on Driver's Licenses

    I actually have 2 questions.

    1. If you reach a certain amount on points, would the federal government ever intervene or is all of that dealt with by your state government?

    2. (For Texas LEO's) If you speed more than a couple of times but each time take the defensive driving course and pay the dues, do any points ever get accrued on your license??


    My friend and I are having a bet on this (he's trying to tell me he knows more about Texas driving laws than myself )

    While I can't answer your second question, as I'm not familiar with Texas law, I'll answer the first.

    Driver licensing is purely a state issue. The Federal government doesn't not get involved in such issues.

    Besides, what did you mean by intervene?

      Thanks for the help, Bravo8. That's at least 10 dollars I've won. Anybody who knows the 2nd question??

        You both lose. We don't have a points system here in Texas. Now where's my $10???

          Never mind, Bravo already gave the same answer.

            OK Tex, come clean here. Just HOW MANY tickets did YOU get, and what were they for?

              No Don, there were no tickets to be had here. There is money to win though

              TC, by points, I just mean, can you essentially keep getting speeding tickets and as long as you do that video defensive driving course, nothing will happen to your record or license at all?

                I don't know how it works in Texas, but I think I recall where you could only take defensive driving for a ticket like only once in maybe a year(?), and then after you took it if you got another ticket, it goes on your record.

                I might be way off base here, but I think this might be the way it works.

                  You're only allowed to take DDC once a year. It shows on your DL that you took a defensive driving course. There is also a limit on the mph over. 20, I believe is the limit.

                  All your activity is entered into your DL history, everything from tickets to accidents to actions taken by DIC. Certain things come off after 5??? years, but that info is still available if a LEO requests it.

                  No "point" system, but you can achieve what is called "habitual violator" status. You go on probation and can have your DL suspended for violating your probation.

                  Lastly, the FED cannot intervene in your DL matters. It's a state thing.
