Get Your Adult Drivers License in Texas
Earning your Texas drivers license as an adult is a cinch – it’s easy at 1-2-3.
STEP 1: Sign up for an adult drivers ed course
If you’re between the ages of 18-24, the state of Texas requires you to take a drivers ed course before applying for a Texas drivers license. With I Drive Safely’s 6-hour Texas Adult Drivers Ed course, you can earn your license the easy way with a fully online curriculum, 24/7 access, and the freedom to study when, where, and how you want.
If you’re a Texas adult 25 and older, a drivers ed course is not required. However, if you take an adult drivers ed course, you can bypass the written exam completely when you go to the DPS office – the final exam for your course counts as the DPS written exam.
STEP 2: Receive your certificate of completion
After you take our 6-hour drivers ed course, you’ll need to pass our final exam: 30 multiple-choice questions on road signs and rules. Don’t stress – you have 3 attempts to get a passing grade (70% or higher).
After you pass, you’ll receive a completion certificate, and it’s off to the DPS for your final tests.
STEP 3: Go to your local DPS office
Make a road test appointment at your local DPS office. If you’re 18-24 years old, you will be required to present your completion certificate, ITTD completion certificate, and pass vision and hearing exams before taking your road test. Remember, if you’re a Texas adult 25 or older and have not taken a drivers ed course, you are required to take a written exam as well.
Once you pass your road test, you’ll officially be a licensed Texas driver. Congratulations!
