AUSTIN (AP) – The Texas Department of Public Safety says court-related information on highway patrol-issued citations is now available online.

DPS on Wednesday announced drivers can get court contact details on citations issued within the last two years. The site can help drivers who misplaced tickets before paying them or who want to make arrangements to contest the citations.

A driver must provide a license or identification card number, date of birth, plus the full name as listed on the license.

DPS says the agency’s search results will include the name, address and contact information for the court where the ticket was filed.
