AUSTIN (AP) – Putting together the paperwork to take a defensive driving class in Texas just got easier.

The Department of Public Safety on Wednesday announced Texas drivers can now order their driving records online and print them out immediately.

Previous requests were only handled via mail.

DPS says drivers can place their online order using a credit card and details from their driver’s license, and then print out their record, which is available in a certified version suitable for submitting in court.

A statement from DPS says the convenience of ordering a driver’s record online and then printing it will save everyone time and money.
