FAQs - 6 Hour Driving Course Texas | Texas Adult Driver's Education Answers

(Getting drivers license in Texas over 18 - Under 25 Years of Age)

1. I’m 19 years old and want to get my driver’s license.  I was told that I might have to take a class.  Do they mean a defensive driving class?

No! Starting on March 1, 2010, Texas law changed to require persons from 18 to under 25 years of age who wish to obtain a driver’s license to successfully complete a six hour driver education course exclusively for adults or a complete adult and teen driver education course (32 hours of classroom, 7 hours behind-the-wheel, 7 hours observation).

A six hour defensive driving course is specifically for ticket dismissal purposes and/or an insurance discount.  It cannot be used for this purpose.

2. Can a 17-year-old enroll in a driver education course exclusively for adults?

No! Senate Bill 1317 specifically indicates that the course is exclusively for adults.  A person must be at least 18 years old to enroll in the course.

3. My older sister just turned 25 and wants to get her license too.  Will she have to take this class?

No! Anyone 25 or older will not be required to take the class.  However, first-time driver license applicants 25 and older are encouraged to participate in this educational driver education program.  (See course information below.)

As part of the course, participants must pass the Texas Department of Public Safety Road Signs and Road Rules written examinations. Persons successfully completing the exams at the school do not have to take them again at DPS.

5. That sounds like a Drug and Driving Alcohol Awareness Program (DADAP) course which I took a couple of weeks ago.  I received a certificate for an insurance discount when I finished the course.  Can I use that certificate to get my license?

No! A six hour DADAP course may not be used for this purpose.

Each school establishes a fee schedule for the costs of their programs.  Please contact the schools in your area for prices.

# Texas Driver's License Education Online Course

QUESTION: So I'm 17 and I've been in Ded I've completed the course and now i have 4 hours of driving and observing left. My question is if  I'll be 18 on may 8, and i know there are less requirement for the 18-24 class. Do you think my driving school will let me just wait till i'm 18 then give me my certificate, because I've completed 32 hours of class vs. the 6 hrs of course work required of the 18-24 yr old. Is this even worth asking my Driving school for? what are the exact requirements for Adult driver's Ed in TEXAS?


As of March 1, 2010, anyone age 18 through 24 who does not have a valid driver license from another state or country must complete an approved driver education course and a driving skills test to become a licensed driver in Texas. Applicants must submit a certificate proving successful completion of a driver education course approved by the Texas Education Agency under Sections 1001.101 (a) (1), 1001.101 (a) (2), or 1001.1015, Texas Education Code.

Senate Bill 1317, passed by the 81st Texas Legislature in 2009, created this requirement and authorized the development of a six-hour adult driver education course to meet the needs of this group of drivers.

QUESTION: Do I really have to be 17 1/2 to take the permit test without drivers ed?

Okay well I'm turning 17 1/2 in one month and I want to go to the DPS to take my permit test and in Ca you don't need to take drivers ed when you're 17 1/2 to get a permit but the thing is I can't wait and I really want to take it now. Do they really even check when you're there or can I take it before I become 17 1/2 without taking drivers ed?

ANSWER: Regardless if you are in California, New York, Texas or Florida, you will have to follow the guidelines established by your States Dept. of Transportation.

Each State has different age limits for getting your learner's permit and / or your driver's permit. The one thing that ALL states have in common, is that they all require you to present hard copy proof of your citizenship and your legal age. So if you are only 17 yrs old and the State's requirement if 17 1/2 yrs old, then unfortunately you will have to wait. Another checks & balance to add to the process is Auto insurance coverage. Most auto insurance providers will not issue a solo policy for someone who is under the State's required age.

Be patient, your time will come. A lot of responsibility comes with learning to drive. Once you get behind the wheel of a car, you now have the ability to kill someone if you do not abide by the rules of the road.

QUESTION: Can the Driver's test in Texas be skipped if I completed a Driver's Ed. course?

I'm about to go to DPS in a couple of days to get my driver's license, my cousin said he didn't have to take a driving test when he went for his license, but that was two years ago and I've also been reading online about how if you took a driver's ed course the driving test can be skipped. I'm 17 and and im about to be 18 in Oct, does this apply to me? I did complete a driver's ed course and I've had my permit for 6 months already.

p.s My cousin was also 17 went he went for his license.

ANSWER: I live in Texas with two teens so I know exactly what happened. First to answer your question about skipping the road test. No, you still have to take your road test. Everybody HAS to take a roast test, regardless of age. I think what you saw as being skipped was having the learners permit for 6 months. If you are 18 or over, you do not need to have your learner's permit for 6 months. All you do then is take an adult driver's education class, then take your road test.

What happened with your cousin is this: SOMETIMES, when a teen is taking driver's ed, the driver's ed place will waive him through so that he doesn't have to go and take a road test. This happens for teens who are really excellent drivers. when they are doing their drive times with their instructor, the instructor can make this decision. It doesn't happen very often, but it happened to a friend of my son's too.

So hopefully you have been taking driver's ed? otherwise you will not be able to get your license at 17. You MUST take driver's ed AND you will have your learners permit for 6 months FIRST.

QUESTION: Texas drivers license--drivers ed?

# Texas Learners Permit Without Drivers Education

QUESTION: Can you get your Texas learners permit without drivers education?

I'm 15. I don't the time and i don't want to take drivers ed. I have heard that if you wait until you are 15 1/2 that you can get your learners permit by taking a knowledge test. Is this true? And if so what exactly did you do?  I already got the driving handbook( little yellow booklet) from online. Do I just go to the DPS and ask to take the test? Or do I have to register and apply in advance?

ANSWER: Driver's Ed is MANDATORY if you want your license BEFORE you are 18. You may be able to get your permit issued to you before taking or completing Driver's Ed, but you will not get your license without it unless you wait until you are 18.

From the TX DPS Website:
"A person under age 18 must show proof of driver education, verification of current enrollment and attendance in school (or high school graduation or GED), proof of social security number, as well as proof of identification.

You still have to take drivers ed. there is something called parent taught drivers ed.  All u have to do is go to the DMV with your parents and sign some stuff. u do have to take a test but u can only do it after u have had driving time with your parents and read the driving book a little.

QUESTION: How can I get a license in Texas without drivers ed?

I'm 16 yrs old and my cousin didn't take drivers ed. She had her parents sign this paper and then they practiced with her how to drive and she had to complete a certain number of hours to get her license. I was wondering how do can I take the same thing.

ANSWER: It's called "Parent taught driver education" and it's allowed in Texas.

Texas implemented a Parent Taught Driver Education Program on April 1, 1997. The Parent Taught Driver Education Program requires students to acquire the essential knowledge, skills and experience to perform educed-risk practices in the total traffic environment. To achieve this goal, students are required to master the following elements: applicable Texas traffic laws, rules and procedures for operating and owning an automobile; benefits of occupant protections, use of a space management systems; factors and behaviors that effect driver performance including alcohol and other drugs; and protection of Texas natural resources, including litter prevention.

The Parent Taught Driver Education Program is available to teenagers between the ages of 14 and 17. However, before the instructor (parent, stepparent, grandparent, step-grandparent, foster parent or legal guardian) begins teaching this course, the instructor must have a valid TEXAS driver license for the preceding three years. Active US military personnel and their spouse may participate as instructors if they hold a valid license from their state of permanent residence or last duty station for the preceding three years..

QUESTION: In Texas as an adult who's never had a drivers license, do you need to have drivers permit to take the driving test for a drivers license? Or can you just go there with my sisters car, and I can still take the driving test? I currently don't have any up to date ID either.

I am 21 years old, I've completed the adult drivers ed class online, and got my certificate. When I was 17 years old, I took a drivers ed class in school, and did get my drivers permit, but I had to have it for 6 months before I could get my drivers license, by the time the 6 months was up, I turned 18, and that drivers ed course became useless since I had become an adult, so I had to take an adult drivers ed course. I've only ever had parent taught driving, and that was for the few months I had my permit, because it also expired when I turned 18.

ANSWER: Driving test requires you drive to prove you can. To drive in the state of Texas, regardless of age, you must hold a valid license, which is what a learners permit is, a valid license.

Go there, take the test. If you pass the written you will get your permit. Follow the rules for the permit to get some practice in driving. Once you feel confident then go do the behind the wheel test.
