In order for a student to obtain a learner's permit, they must attend our classroom course. We will prepare them for their permit test during the course, and walk you through the process step-by-step.
The student must be 15 before they can apply for a permit. If they start class at age 14, they must wait until they are 15 to go to the DPS.

How long will I hold my permit, and when can I get a license?
Texas requires a Permit be held by the student for a minimum of 6 months, AND be 16 years old in order to get your license. Our course is designed to fit in the 6 month hold period. If you turn 18 while you have your permit, you must renew it at the DPS. You will take with you $25 and your old permit. They will take a new picture of you, so comb your hair! For more information, please click on the "License Info" tab above.
If you are 18-25 years old, you must take a different driver's education course in order to obtain a learner's permit. This class is 6 hours long and is mostly offered online. Simply Google adult driving course for 18-25 year olds to find this course online.
For those older than 26 years old, you are not required to take a driver's education course in order to obtain a permit. You will need to obtain a driver's handbook from the Department of Public Safety to study so that you can pass the permit test at the DPS.
