Teens Driver Education

Students between the ages of 14 years 9 months and 17 years of age are required to complete the teen course in order to obtain their driver license. The state of Texas requires 32 hours of classroom instruction followed by 14 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction (total 7 drive times). Students will take the written test in the classroom and upon passing, they will be given a DE-964 certificate to get their learner’s permit from the DPS. Once student has been issued a learner’s permit, they must submit a copy of the permit to the driving school office either by providing a hard copy or uploading a digital copy of the permit on our website (click here)

Drive times may be scheduled according to the student’s schedule. These are designed to be scheduled flexibly. The students go out in a group of two with one of our instructors. They each drive for one hour and observe for one hour at a time. During summer, we will have morning and evening hours available for the classes and drive times.

In addition to the completion of the course, student under the age of 18 also required to drive 30 hours in which 10 hours must be at nighttime.  Drivinginstructions for this must be provided by parents/legal guardians (or an adult over the age of 21). These hours must be entered in 30 hours log provided by DPS (Click Here to print: 30 Hours Log)



As of September 1, 2015, Texas requires all students who took or are taking the teen course to complete the ITTD program prior to their road test. This can only be completed after the student has completed the full teen course (32 hours of classroom instruction, 14 hours of behind the wheel training, and 30 hours of behind the wheel training with an adult) and received their certificate of completion. ITTD is a 2 hours program that has eight modules and a quiz after each module. After completing all the lessons, the student is eligible to print their certificate, which they will receive via email. The ITTD certificate is only valid for 90 days. ITTD can be done online.
