    Have questions about Hidalgo County DPS office locations, need directions to the Hidalgo County Traffic Court, or require more information about Hidalgo County Gov. recourses? We have done our best to deliver to you helpful resources and information to get your questions answered by bringing you links to your Official Hidalgo County Website and your local Hidalgo County TX DPS Website.
  • If you are pulled over in Hidalgo Texas for a traffic violation, a Hidalgo Texas law enforcement officer will likely issue you a citation. On your citation you will find contact information for the Hidalgo Texas court overseeing your traffic violation. Whether you would like to protest the violation in court or simply pay your fine, you must contact the Hidalgo Texas court and disclose your decision within ten day of being issued your citation, or risk heavier fines and other penalties. Should you choose to simply pay the fine, the Hidalgo Texas court will be able to tell you over the phone what payment methods you can use, as each Texas county differs with regard to credit cards, cash and other forms of accepted payment. In some case, if your violation is severe or you are under the age of 18, the Hidalgo Texas court may inform you that your appearance in court is required. In that event, your court date will likely be on the citation. If not, ask the court when you phone in.

    Thankfully, the Texas Education Agency allows Hidalgo County drivers to attend a driver safety program, including online defensive driving programs such as those offered by 1SafeDriver.com, in order to have as much as one ticker per year removed from their Texas Department of Public Safety driving record. In order to receive this beneficial treatment, you must obtain permission from the Hidalgo Texas court overseeing your violation. The Hidalgo Texas court's approval will depend on factors such as the amount of tickets already on your driving record and the number of times you have already attended driver safety school or participated in a defensive driving program. If it appears you have not learned enough from traffic school to be a safe driver after several times, a Hidalgo Texas court may deprive you of another opportunity. Further, if your offense is of an extreme nature, such as leaving the scene of an accident, a court will likely not grant you this privilege.

    If you are given such an opportunity, however, a Hidalgo Texas online defensive driving program will remove the underlying offense from your Texas driving record, not only preventing you from accumulating points that could result in your license being suspended, but also preventing possible redundant conviction surcharges and the costs of getting your driving privileges reinstated.
  • If you are found guilty or plead guilty to a traffic violation, including if you simply pay the fine, you are likely to receive points against your Texas driving record based on the Texas Responsibility Program. While some violation, such as speeding by less than ten percent of the posted speed limit, are exempt from point accumulation, nearly all other violations follow a simple formula. If you have incurred a traffic citation for a violation, the Texas Department of Public Safety will assess two points against your driving record. If your violation has resulted in an accident, three points are attached to your Texas driver record. These points will also be attached if you obtain a citation in another state that would have resulted in points being placed on your record had it been received in Texas.

    In addition, if your violation is for driving under the influence, failing to obtain proper insurance driving without a proper license, you are likely to be subject to annual fines, called, "Conviction Based Surcharges," for each of the three years the offense remains on your driving record. Thus, if you are pulled over and are found to be driving without insurance, you will be fined three times for the single offense, in addition to points being assessed against your Texas driving record.

    Suspension of Texas Driving Privileges

    Once you have amassed six points on your record within a three year timeframe, the Texas Department of Public Safety will suspend your Texas driving privileges. Even if you have managed to avoid the point accumulation but have obtained four traffic violations in a year, or seven in two years, your Texas driving privileges will also be suspended. if you are a juvenile driver under the age of 18, just two traffic violations in one year will result in a temporary suspension of your Texas driving privileges. Again, these violations will include any citations you received outside the state. In addition to the costs of living without your driving privileges, the court fees and possible Conviction Based Surcharged that go along with certain traffic citations on your Texas driver record, you are likely to incur significant fines associated with getting your license reinstated. It is in your best interest and the best interests of your pocketbook that you avoid accumulating traffic violations on your Texas driver record.
