Victim Impact Panel

2 Hours

$35 Until December 31st, 2018

$30 effective January 1st, 2019

Schedule Varies

The Victim Impact Panel is usually (but not always) completed as a condition of probation.  If you have not yet been convicted and are taking courses either in anticipation of probation, or to build a statement of character for the courts, this course is recommended. 

You may or may not be required to complete this session as a condition of your probation.  Because this course is unrelated to driver licensing, there is no online search verification tool to confirm if it is required in your particular case.  If you are unsure whether or not you need to complete this session, contact your attorney or probation officer. 

*See our Resources tab for more information regarding Administrative License Revocations, Occupational Licenses, and SR-22 insurance.


Do you have other requirements necessary to reinstate your license? Click the "Check Driver License Eligibility" button to go to the DPS License Eligibility website and confirm the necessary requirements for the reinstatement of your license.

Payment Plans

If unable to pay in full on or before the first class day, payment plans are available. Payment Plan Fee: $10.  Total $45.  The entire payment must be made, including the additional payment plan fee, before your certificate of completion will be released. We accept cash and credit/debit cards. No checks.


What Do I Bring?

Bring a pen and your case number.  If your case is still open, bring the contact information for your attorney; email address is preferable.  If you are on probation, we will need the name and email address/fax number of your probation officer. If you require that a copy of your certificate of completion be sent to another party, such as an out of state DPS office, or a SAP agent, you will need to bring their contact information, preferably an email address/fax number.

Attendance Policy

Absences are not permitted.  This is only a 2-hour session. You must arrive on time.  If you arrive late, you will not be permitted entry and your registration will be moved to the next available class session.


How does my completion of the course get reported?  

You will be provided with a certificate of completion at the end of the class session.  If your case is still pending, or needs to be sent to a probation officer or outside agency, we will send a copy of your completion to the indicated parties as a courtesy. In order for us to do so, you must provide us with the up-to-date contact information of these parties, preferably an email address or fax number.  If you are on probation, you must provide us with the name of your probation officer.

Do you have access to my court records?  

No. We are a for-profit privately owned business that is certified by the State of Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation to offer Offender Education courses.  We are not privileged to your case, court records, or probation information.  You are responsible for informing us of your case number, probation officer, attorney, or any other third-party that needs to be notified of your course completion.  You are also responsible for knowing the details of your case; which agency your certificate needs to be sent to, and which agency is mandating that you take this course.


My friend is giving me a ride, can he/she attend the class too?  

No.  State regulations and confidentiality conditions do not permit unregistered guests in the classroom during instruction.  If your ride is waiting for you, they must wait in the reception area. If your friend would like to take the class, he/she will be required to pay and register in the same manner as other students.

I don't have childcare.  Do you allow kids in the classroom?  

No. We do not allow children to attend the courses and children are not permitted to be unaccompanied in the reception area.  If you are unable to find childcare, please let us know and we will move your course registration to the next available week.


Cell Phone Policy

Cell phone use is not permitted in the classroom during periods of instruction.  You may use your cell phone before and after class, and during designated class breaks.  The use of your cell phone during periods of instruction is grounds for dismissal from the course.  You will be required to re-take the course and pay the $30 course fee again.


Certificates

You will receive a certificate immediately upon the completion of the class session. If an email address is on file, a scanned copy of your certificate will be emailed within one week of course completion.

Replacement Certificates

The fee for duplicate certificates, in the event that your original certificate has been lost, is $10.
