How to Apply for a Learner's Permit in Texas

In order to receive a Driver's Permit, students must be at least 15 years old and must have begun or completed an online driver education course. With either our Parent-Taught Driver Education or Texas Online Drivers Ed courses, students will receive a certificate after completing the first course module that they can use to apply for their Texas Learner's Permit at the DPS.

Choose a TexasDrivingSchool.com Course:

  1. Those seeking a Texas Learner's Permit can choose between two courses: Texas Online Drivers Education or Parent-Taught Drivers Education.
  2. For both courses, once Module 1 is complete, students who are at least 15 years old may apply for their Texas Learner's Permit.

Apply for a Texas Learner's Permit

Once the above requirements have been met, students must make an appointment at their nearest Texas DPS to apply for a Texas Learner's Permit. A parent/legal guardian must be present at this appointing (regardless of which Driver Education course was selected). In order to complete the Texas Learner's Permit application, the student will need to pass an in-person knowledge test. That is, unless they've already completed TexasDrivingSchool.com's online Texas Learner's Permit Exam, which allows you to bypass taking the Texas Learner's Permit Exam in-person.

Required forms that must be brought to the DPS include:

After the student has obtained a learner's permit, he or she can begin behind-the-wheel training. Once the course and behind-the-wheel training requirements are met, the student may apply for a Texas provisional driver's license.

If you have any questions while taking the course, we offer 24/7 customer support.
