Deferred Disposition (Probation)

Deferred disposition is a form of probation that you may request from the judge to prevent your citation from appearing on your driving record as a conviction. If deferred disposition is granted, it lasts a period of 90 days from the date of your payment. You cannot receive another moving violation within the State of Texas during the 90-day period. If deferred disposition is successfully completed, the violation will not be reported on your driving record and will be dismissed. 

You cannot receive deferred disposition if you were charged with any of the violations listed below:
  • Speeding in excess of 25 mph over the posted speed limit.
  • Speeding in a school zone 25 mph over the posted speed limit
  • Any violation that occurred in a construction zone
  • Assault – family violence
  • Failure to stop for school bus
  • Any violation involving an accident resulting in damage to a vehicle, striking a fixture, landscape, or unattended vehicle.
  • No driver's license
  • You cannot receive deferred disposition if you had a Commercial Driver’s License on the date of the violation.
If you are under the age of 25, you must appear in-person to request deferred disposition and as a stipulation you will be required to complete a driver's safety course.

You must contact the Saginaw Municipal Court to find out your fine or bond amount. You must add $25 to the fine or bond amount that you are given for each violation that you are requesting deferred disposition on.
