How to Complete Online Drivers Ed in Texas

Can We Do Drivers Ed On a Phone or Tablet?
Absolutely! Our lessons look amazing on high resolution screens such as phones and tablets. Unlike some other courses, there is no need for an extra app; ours just works!
How Does Online Driver Education Work?
Have you seen our Driver Ed Guide? It explains the process in more detail.

Our course is a one-stop parent taught driver's education program that takes place 100% online (aside from parent-led driving). When we say it's all inclusive, we mean it. You will not pay a dime to us after enrollment.

Once you have your Parent Taught Program Guide from the TDLR (Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation) you may realize that it can be confusing. Don't worry, our course is going to walk you through it step by step. We make it easy. At any point you need to use a form from the TDLR Parent Taught Program Guide, we will remind you, and we provide great sample forms with labels and notations; so you will always fill them out correctly!

Complete the lessons entirely at your own pace. Start and stop whenever you would like. Once you are finished with the first 6 hours (concurrent method) you can take the official Learner License Exam online with us. After passing, you will request your certificate of completion (DE-964). Once the student has their Texas Learner License, they will move on to the driving lessons, which will guide the parent on exactly what to do in the vehicle.

Take our practice permit quizzes as often as you would like and review ALL past quizzes in your "Quiz Records." (Take a free practice quiz here.)
We designed the course to be as easy as possible. Driver's ed shouldn't be a confusing process and it won't be with our course. Simply follow the instructions and your student will be on their way to earning a learner and driver license.
Where Do We Start?
As with every online course, the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) require parents to first register for the Parent Taught Program Guide online. Simply follow the directions on the TDLR's website; this is a State licensing requirement. After registering online with the TDLR for Parent Taught, you may register for our course through our registration page.

Once you have registered, you can get started right away!
How Much Does the Online Driving Course Cost?
Our entire course, everything included, is a one-time fee of $79 (for either Concurrent or Block methods). You won't find a better value in Texas. A student will be able to get their learner AND driver license for this one fee. (the DPS charges a small fee for issuance of the permit and license when you visit them)

If you need the "Driving Portion Only" the fee is $59. (students only qualify for this if they have finished all 32 classroom hours at another school)

Please call for pricing on multiple student discounts. 281-993-5662
Does the Course Expire?
Our course does NOT expire, unlike many other Texas parent-taught courses; which charge you monthly access after a certain period of time.

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) requires that a student must complete a Parent Taught Driver Education course before their 25th birthday (18-24). This course will not expire and we DO NOT charge you monthly for access like some other courses.
How Do We Take the Texas Permit Exam? (Learner License Exam)
Online, right here!

After the student completes the first 6 hours of lessons (in concurrent method), they will then be able to take the official Texas Learner License Exam from home on our website. Once you pass this exam, there is NOT another exam at the DPS. We are licensed to give the official State Learner License exam.
Concurrent vs Block Methods
Our course is approved for both methods.

In the "Concurrent Method" your student will complete 6 hours of classroom instruction, obtain the Texas Learner License, and then complete the remainder of the course along with the 44 hours of the driving portion. (all included as well)

In the "Block Method" your student will complete all 32 hours of classroom instruction, obtain their Learner License, and then complete 44 hours of the driving portion. 14 year olds will need to use the "Block Method," unless their birthday is coming soon enough for it to make sense using the Concurrent Method.

Questions? We Have Answers!
Does This Course Have Videos?
You bet it does!! We have some great videos throughout the course, made by our great team of creative professionals, that other courses don't even come close to! Check out the videos on the course homepage, or watch the one below.

How Old Do I Have To Be?
A student must be between the ages of 14-24 on the day that you sign up for the course. State law requires a student to wait until their 15th birthday to take the official Learner License Exam.
How Fast Can I Get My Texas Permit? (Learner License)
Concurrent Method:
After successful completion of the first 6 hours (min. 3 days) of classroom instruction, completion of the practice quizzes, and passing of the Official Texas Learner License Exam, a student will be eligible to apply for a Learner License. The student must also meet all other state requirements for obtaining a Learner License. The course will tell you exactly what requirements you have to meet before going to the DPS.

Block Method:
After successful completion of the full 32 hours (min. 16 days) of classroom instruction, completion of the practice quizzes, and passing of the Official Texas Learner License Exam, a student will be eligible to apply for a Learner License. The student must also meet all other state requirements for obtaining a Learner License. The course will tell you exactly what requirements you have to meet before going to the DPS.
How Fast Can I Get My Texas Driver's License?
Texas law requires a minor to maintain a Learner License for a minimum of 6 months before being eligible for a Texas driver license. The 6 month period does not start until the student has received their Learner License from a DPS official (the day you visit the DPS for the permit). A Texas Learner License can be obtained in a minimum of 3 days of course enrollment. (See previous FAQ)

After the 6 month period, as long as the student meets all other state requirements for a driver license, they will be eligible. (including being at least 16 years of age)
Do You Offer Just The 'Driving Portion' By Itself?
Yes, we offer the 44 hours needed to complete the Driving Portion only. The fee for the Driving portion only is $59. You will find this option on our registration page.

Students and parents that want to use the "Driving Portion Only" will need to have completed all 32 classroom hours at another school and possess a certificate showing so.
What is the TDLR?
The TDLR, or Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation was created by Texas lawmakers, and now administers the Parent Taught Driver Education program in Texas. The TDLR also now oversees multiple forms or delivery of driver education. What does this mean for you, the parent or student? Well, not much. Forms will start to look different, and the state will now have a different phone number and contact information. We will still guide you through any subsequent changes as we always do. The Texas Parent Taught Driver Education was formally administered by the Texas Department of Public Safety. More information on the TDLR can be found here at their website.

What to Expect When Visiting the Texas DPS
Texas Permit (Learner License)
  • Texas requires a student to complete 6 hours of lessons online before taking the Texas Learner License Exam. You will take the State exam on our website and receive an emailed DE-964 certificate to bring to the DPS.
  • You do not need an appointment for the Learner License (Permit), but plan to wait. Some DPS locations will have a "Get in line Online" feature. Please check for your local DPS here.
  • The student and instructor will bring the paperwork we provide, along with your state certificate (DE-964) to the DPS. Fill out all paperwork prior, but wait to sign any documents in front of the DPS official.
  • The DPS clerk will process your paperwork, check the student’s eyesight and then take their picture for the Learner License ID card. With America's Drivers Ed, there is NO exam at the DPS for the Learner License (Permit).
  • Before leaving the DPS they will issue a paper Learner License and send the official Learner License in the mail. The paper license is valid for the student to begin the Driving Portion of online driver education.
Texas Driver License
  • Once you have completed the entire online driver education course, held a Learner License (permit) for a minimum of 6 months and are at least 16, you are eligible to schedule your road test to get a Texas Driver License.
  • America's Drivers Ed will issue another state certificate (DE-964) for the Driver License. Before visiting the Texas DPS, the student must watch a 2 hour ITTD video, within 90 days of the driving test.
  • Most Texas DPS locations allow you to schedule a driving test on the DPS website, or by visiting your local office. It is best to schedule road tests a couple of months before you want the license; many locations are booked for months out.
  • Another option is to schedule the driving test with a local driving school, approved for 'Third Party Skills Testing.' This costs an extra fee by that school. Take your completed paperwork to the test, then they will seal everything in an envelope for the student and instructor to take to the DPS for the Provisional License.
  • Arrive early for your driving test, along with all completed paperwork. If you take the driving test at a driving school, expect to wait in line at the DPS or use “Get in Line Online” feature on the DPS website.
