You can request defensive driving (driving safety course under Art. 45.0511 of the TX Code of Criminal Procedure) if your speed was under 95 mph or more than 25 mph over the posted speed limit. The court should give you 90 days to complete the course (do it early so it doesn’t fall off the radar!)

Administrative License Revocation hearings are held by the TX Department of Public Safety and are civil proceedings that determine whether or not your driver’s license will be suspended. You only have 15 days to request a hearing, so if there was a chance the officer made a mistake in stopping you or you have questions about the stop, request the hearing and see an attorney – you can always tell DPS at a later date that you no longer want it should you choose to do that.
