This Step: Take Driver Training
Take Driver Training in Texas
You’ll spend at least the next 6 months driving on your instruction permit or hardship license. This is how you will best prepare for the road test when it comes time for you to apply for your drivers license.
If you complete the classroom phase through your high school or a commercial drivers ed program, you can switch to the Parent Taught Program for the in-car driver training portion.
Find a Local Driver Education Provider
Find local driving school locations along with business profiles, reviews and contact information.
A) Get On the Road
No matter how you choose to complete the drivers education and driver training requirement (either through a third-party programs or your parents) you must clock 30 hours.
Learner’s Permit Restrictions
While completing your driver training, keep in mind that behind-the-wheel hours must be completed in the presence of an adult who:
- Has a valid license
- Is 21 years of age or older
- Occupies the seat next to you
Log Your Practice Hours
In most cases, you are not required to submit a driving log of the hours you clock behind the wheel. BUT, it’s a good idea to track these informally on a piece of paper that your supervised driver can approve. That way if any questions arise, you’ll be prepared to offer proof of the hours you spent on the road.
