Is there a cost or fee to join the Trusted Driver Program?

No. It’s absolutely free to join the Trusted Driver Program and it’s a voluntary opt-in. There’s no yearly fee or subscription required.

Will Trusted Driver sell my personal information?

No. Trusted Driver will never sell, share or provide the information you provide when you create your profile with any vendor or company. To ensure your privacy is protected, your data is encrypted, stored and transmitted securely using technology that protects the information from unauthorized retrieval or use.

Are the police tracking me if I join and become a Trusted Driver member?

No. Law enforcement will not be able to track your location. Your Trusted Driver profile is only accessed by you and those you authorize. Protecting members’ profiles is of paramount importance to Trusted Driver, complete with audits, checks and balances and the ability to archive and discover anyone who accesses the system.

By signing up, am I making it easier to get a ticket for minor traffic offenses?

No. The goal of the Trusted Driver Program is to enable frictionless interactions between the public and law enforcement, not generate revenue. Being a member means you are actively improving transport safety through a safer, digital dialogue. Additionally, electronic citations are only issued by officers who witness a minor violation. Trusted Driver is not connected to any digital traffic surveillance systems that could increase the likelihood of being fined.

My driver's license will not scan. How do I register?

Trusted Driver requires a valid driver’s license that has a scannable barcode on the back. If your license does not scan, you will not be able to register for Trusted Driver.

*Note: If your license has two barcodes on the back, scan the larger PDF barcode, which looks like a “scrambled” barcode.


If I get a citation as a Trusted Driver member, will there be additional fees on top of any fines?

A Trusted Driver member receiving a citation through the program will not cost you any additional fees. The cost of the citation remains the same as if you had received the citation through traditional law enforcement. Receiving a citation through the Trusted Driver Program provides you the benefit of not being pulled over.

If I have outstanding warrants, can I still join the Trusted Driver Program?

Yes. If outstanding warrants are discovered as you are creating your profile in the Trusted Driver Program, we can assist in multiple ways to settle those outstanding fees and get you back on the road as a licensed vehicle operator.

Will I get a citation for following the Trusted Driver Program protocols while I am driving a vehicle?

No. The Trusted Driver Program adheres to all traffic laws, including “distracted driver” legislation. The Trusted Driver Program rules were established with the public’s safety as its priority and meets the requirements set forth by the Transportation Code of all states and city ordinances.
