How to Check the Status of a Suspended Driver's License in Texas


If you suspect your Texas driver's license has been suspended or you have taken steps to reinstate it, contact the Department of Public Safety for an update on its status. You can do this in person at a local office, by phone, email or online.

Visit Local Office

  • The Texas Department of Public Safety provides a list of office locations. You can find a driver license office by city, county or zip code. After entering search data and clicking "Submit" button, a new page will open with location's street address, hours of operation and payment methods accepted.

Phone Inquiry

  • Call the Texas Department of Public Safety at (512) 424-2600. Customer service representatives are available weekdays between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. DPS recommends calling between either 7 and 8 a.m. or 5 and 6 p.m. for faster service. Fridays also tend to feature lower call volumes.

Email Inquiry

  • You also can check on your suspended license using the inquiry form on DPS's website. Provide your name as it appears on your license, driver's license number, birthdate, email and phone number in the boxes provided. Underneath, list your questions and be as detailed as possible. Click the "Submit Form" button. DPS will answer your inquiry within two business days.

Access License Eligibility Database

  • Another option is using DPS's License Eligibility database to check the status of your license. Provide your driver's license number, last four digits of your Social Security number and birthdate in the fields provided, then press the "Login" button.

Order Driver Record

  • Check the status of your license by ordering a copy of your driving record. You can order it online from the DPS's website. To order by mail, complete an Application for Driver Record and mail to the Texas Department of Public Safety, P.O. Box 149008, Austin, TX 78714-9008. There is a fee for the record, ranging from $4 to $10, based on the type of record you want.
