When the man was born: The birth of a Texas driving record
“It’s one of those things that you’ve got to go to the source,” said Richard Pappas, executive director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, which oversees the Texas motorist license office.
“We have to make sure that we’re not just passing it on to the next generation.”
The state has no official record of a person’s driving record until they pass the Texas driving test.
A person who fails to get a Texas driver license could face a felony charge and fines.
But in recent years, officials have been pushing for a new system.
Last year, Gov.
Greg Abbott signed a law requiring the Texas DMV to establish a new way to track drivers.
The state will start using a smartphone app to track the whereabouts of new license holders within 48 hours.
The app will use GPS to track people’s movement over time.
A system of license-holders’ fingerprints will be stored on a secure database, according to the Texas Motor Vehicle Commission.
The agency will use that database to determine who should get a driver’s license.
Pappes said it’s a good way to check who’s passed the test and who’s not.
He said a person could be an adult who is 21 years old and has never had a driving license, and another who is a student, and still be on the waiting list for a license.
He’s not sure what will happen with the next batch of applicants, but Papps said there are about 2,000 applicants in the system.
Pappas said the database could have some privacy issues, because people could be caught by the state if they don’t have a driver license.
But he said he wants to keep the database public, even though the new driver database won’t be made public until next year.
He thinks the new system will be much more secure than the old system, which had no public record of who was driving at a particular time or where they were.
Papas said he’s not worried about the fact that drivers who don’t get a license could be killed or seriously injured.
He said if people don’t know they have a record, they’re not likely to do anything.PAPPAS: I don’t think that would be a problem.
We don’t want to have any fatalities on the road.
We just want to make it safe for everybody to drive.
