DID YOU KNOW THIS? Texas DL Info

All Texans should be aware of this program - especially since it has received little or no publicity.

All Texas drivers’ licenses have a phone number on the back, just above the bar code on the lower left side - 1-800-525-5555. It’s in very small print, but is there.

This number can be used for emergency assistance on the highway or at other times when motorists find themselves in trouble while in their vehicle.

By calling the number on the back of the driver’s license, a service truck will be directed to the location. Additionally, a state trooper will be dispatched to make sure all is well.

This state-operated service is paid for with tax dollars.
