Deferred Disposition / Probation

Requesting Deferred Disposition

Requests for deferred disposition must be made in person before the appearance date on your citation. Deferred disposition is similar to probation in that specific conditions must be met within a specified period of time.

Approval, length of the deferral period, and terms and conditions of the deferral order are subject to the judge’s discretion.


  • You are not eligible for deferral if you hold a commercial driver’s license or held a commercial driver’s license at the time the offense occurred.
  • You are not eligible if the violation was committed in a construction zone while workers were present.
  • Drivers under the age of 25 are required to take a driver safety course as a term or condition of the deferral order.
  • Drivers that hold a provisional driver's license are required to retest at the Department of Public Safety (DPS).

Failure to Comply

Failure to comply with any term or condition of your deferral order may result in revocation of the order and conviction may be placed on your driving or criminal record.
