NEW Training Requirement For 18 To 24 Year Olds:  Effective March 1, 2010, all first-time applicants for a Texas Driver License between the ages of 18 and 24 years of age must complete a state-approved, six-hour driver education classroom course before a driver license or driving instruction permit will be issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety.


Driver Education Class Exclusively for Adults (18 - 24 year olds)
ABC Driving School offers the state-required six-hour adult driver education course for adults 18 to 24 needing a driver license. Programs are provided in classroom and one-on-one formats or on the Internet. Training is available in English or Spanish and in formats to help individuals that have difficulty reading or are complete nonreaders. Upon completion, graduates are provided a state certificate for submission to the Texas Department of Public Safety Driver License Office.

Classes offered Monday thru Saturday.

Obtaining a Texas Driver License (For Adults Over 25 Years of Age)
To obtain a Texas Driver License, a person must first pass basic knowledge tests over Texas road signs and rules of the road before an in-car road exam can be taken. For persons interested in learning to drive, an instruction (learner’s) permit may be obtained by passing the same tests over the signs and rules of the road. The knowledge exams can be taken at your local Texas Department of Public Safety Driver License Office or at a licensed driver training authorized to train and test students in-house.

To prepare for these knowledge exams you have two options:

 

Option 1 – Applicants may choose to complete the same adult driver education classroom class as offered to 18 to 24 year olds described above. The class includes the state knowledge exams at the school site. (Click here for information on course options & schedules.)

Option 2 – An applicant can obtain a copy of the Texas Driver Handbook from a local DPS Driver License Office or from our school. This handbook contains the basic information that applicants will be quizzed over in the DPS exams. Handbooks are available in English or Spanish and are free of charge to the public.

Applicants should review the handbook chapters and then study the 84 review questions listed in the Appendix B section in the back of the book (page B-1). The questions also list the chapters where the correct answers can be found. After studying and learning this information, the applicant may then take the written exams at the nearest DPS driver license office and request an instruction permit or the in-car road test to receive an unrestricted driver license.
