Driver Responsibility Program

September 29, 2020


Effective September 1, 2019, the State of Texas has repealed the Driver Responsibility Program – Chapter 708, Transportation Code. The Department of Public Safety has reinstated all driver privileges that were previously suspended solely for having unpaid surcharges. If your license was suspended for other offenses, you may check the status of your driver license and determine any reinstatement requirements by visiting our License Eligibility page. Additional information on the repeal of the program may be found at Driver Responsibility Program (Surcharge) Repeal FAQs.
