Getting a drivers license as an adult is easier than you might think!
Our Texas Adult Drivers Education course makes it easy and fast to get your license and get on the road. Follow these simple steps. We’re here to help every step of the way.
STEP 1: Sign up for an adult driver education course
If you’re between the ages of 18-24, the state of Texas requires you to take an adult 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, but it is highly recommended! Keep in mind that f you’re 25 or older and have not taken a drivers ed course, you will be required to take a written exam at the DPS. Taking our adult drivers ed course allows you to take that test online and skip going to the DPS!
STEP 2: Receive your certificate of completion
After you take our adult driver education course, you’ll need to pass our final exam: 30 multiple-choice questions on road signs and rules. Don’t stress! You’ll have three attempts to get a passing grade (70% or higher). Passing this exam means that you don’t have to take the written exam again at the DPS.
Step 3: Complete the Impact Texas Adult Drivers Program
The ITAD program is a free one-hour video about the dangers of distracted driving. After you’ve completed the ITAD program, you’ll get completion certificate to you’ll need to take with you to the DPS.
Step 4: Get a Learners Permit
Adults are not required to take driving lessons, but if you want to practice driving before taking your road test, then you’ll need to get your learners permit. Your driving practice must be done either with a local driving school or with an individual who is at least 21 years old and has a current Texas drivers license.
To get a permit, you’ll need to make an appointment at a DPS driver license office. Then you’ll need to gather all the necessary documents to take the DPS.
STEP 5: Pass Your Driving Test and Get Your License!
Make a driving test appointment at your local DPS office or with a third party, like a driving school. If you’re 18-24 years old, you will be required to present your drivers ed and ITAD course completion certificates before taking your driving test. Remember, if you’re a Texas adult 25 or older and have not taken an adult driver education course, you are required to take a written exam at the DPS. You will also need to pass a vision test (regardless of what age you are) in order to get your license. So don’t forget to wear your glasses or contacts if you need them to drive.
Once you pass your driving test, you’ll officially be a licensed Texas driver. Congratulations!
