How can I keep a citation from effecting my driving record?
The Irving Court provides two programs designed to keep citations from adversely effecting your driving record. These programs are deferred disposition and defensive driving.
  • Defensive Driving allows you to pay court costs and an administrative fee, and take a state approved driver's safety course for the dismissal of your citation.
  • Deferred Disposition is associated with an administrative fee and a probation period in lieu of the fine.

Both of these alternatives require a plea of guilty or no contest and approval from the court. There are several eligibility requirements that the court clerk will discuss with you when requesting one of these options.
