Texas Driving School

Parent-Taught Driver Education Online

Texas TDLR Approved

The Texas Department of Public Safety allows driver ed to be completed outside of the classroom if the course is part of the approved parent-taught driver education program. This program, also known as PTDE, helps students and parents connect on the important topics of driving safety and ensures qualified adult guidance during driving hours.

How Does it Work?

Each student and parent is required to request approval to complete the parent-taught driver education by completing a TDLR application. Once you have been approved, the TDLR will send you a Parent Taught Driver Ed Packet filled with information and forms. Once your TDLR packet has been received, you will be able to begin the online course material necessary to apply for your first Texas learner's license and driver's license.

Texas Drivers Permit - Take Your Permit Test Online

Teens 15-17 can apply for their drivers permit after completion of the 1st unit as long as they submit the proper DL forms. And with our DPS-approved online permit exam, students can avoid taking the written permit test at the DPS!

The student and parent or legal guardian must bring all required forms to their local Texas Department of Public Safety office. These forms are included in the packet you receive from the TDLR. Students that elect to take the permit test will be provided a certificate for proof of completion. If you have any questions once you've registered for the course, simply contact our live 24/7 support and we will help you through the process.
