Checking For License Eligibility In Texas
The biggest problem we have with new clients is the learning curve. For example, simple issues like checking the status of a driver’s license have never even been discussed with many of the clients we meet. They may have had one done, but not understood how or where to look themselves. We want to empower you as a client. We want you to understand the nuts and bolts of what we do, because it makes better clients who have reasonable expectations about the process.
In order to do a background check on your license you are going to need the following information:
- Driver’s License Number
- Date Of Birth
- Last 4 Digits of Your Social Security Number.
Next, you are going to need to click here to visit the driver’s license eligibility website. Once there you will go to the bottom of the landing page and type in your identifying information. Once the information is typed in it will take you to a page to verify your personal information. Your name will be listed at the top of the page and your record will be listed below.
Understanding Your Driving Record
Understanding your Texas driving record is probably the hardest part of the process. First, the site does not actually show your driving record per se. What it does do is state the reasons for any ineligibility that may be causing your license to be suspended. It will also state any reinstatement fees alleged to be owed as a result of the ineligibility. For example, if you received a no insurance conviction you see a statement that tells you that you must provide DPS with SR-22 insurance and contact the DPS Surcharge Program about outstanding penalty fees owed to the State of Texas. There are a variety of reasons a suspension can occur. what we suggest is that you contact our ticket lawyers if you have an issue that you do not understand.
Fixing The Problem
Usually, after talking with our office you will have a good idea of how not to let it happen again. Fixing the problem is also a key element in the process. The hole may be deep depending on how poor the driving record is. However, there is always a way out. Sometimes, the best option may be to get an occupational license. Other times, it may be to contact DPS and get put on a payment plan for your outstanding surcharges. Every case is different.
