An online service offered by,

Department of Public Safety (DPS), is helping suspended drivers get

back behind the wheel with less hassle.

lets drivers view instructions for reinstating a license, pay

reinstatement fees, and track driving eligibility status.

Each year, DPS processes an average of 150,000 driver license

reinstatements. Before the Driver

License Eligibility system was launched, DPS

could only receive payments via mail and suspended drivers could only

track their driving status by phone.

Since the online service’s launch one year ago, more than 100 thousand

suspended drivers have paid their reinstatement fees online instead of

mailing payment to DPS headquarters, and more than 3,500 people log in

every day to view their reinstatement requirements and check their

driving eligibility status.

DPS Driver License Division Assistant Director, Rebecca Davio, is

pleased to offer this convenience to suspended drivers. “Not only does

this service speed up the reinstatement process, but it gives users

transparency into the status of their driving eligibility exactly when

they need it,” Davio states.

Users have commented, “Thank you for making it easier and quicker to

get your DL back in compliance. I can’t stress how much better and

convenient, plus easy to use this new method was!” and “Simple

and informative. The way interaction with my government should be. No

teeth pulling here. Thanks for the job well done!”

All suspended Texas drivers, including commercial driver license

holders, are eligible to use the online Driver

License Eligibility system. To use the online service, all you need

is an Internet connection, your Texas driver license or ID number, and

the last four digits of your social security number. For Texans in need

of other driver services,’s Driver

page also offers Driver
