Types of Driver Records
Any time you are involved in an accident or traffic violation it is recorded on your driving record. Driving records include all non serious violations for a 15 year period. After 15 years the violations are removed. More serious driving violations such as DWI are never removed from your driving record. Out of state violations will also appear on your Texas driving record.
Unlike most states, Texas has 6 different types of driving records. It is important to know which one to request in order to ensure you are maintaining the correct information.
Although there are six different types of driving records available, you can order your Official Certified 3A DPS Driver Record and receive it within 24 hours or less.
