Texas Driving Lesson Requirements
Texas has different requirements for in-car training depending on your age. Find out what you need to do to earn your Texas driver license, depending on how old you are!
In Texas, driving lessons for teens are required by the DPS. Students between 15 and 18 years old must:
- Pass a 32-hour drivers education course

- Pass the in-car driving test at the DPS
You can take drivers education and in-car driving lessons at the same time, but you must have a learner license/instruction permit to begin your driving lessons. You are eligible for a learner license and starting your in-car driving lessons once you've finished the first 6-hour module of drivers ed, which covers Texas traffic rules and regulations.
You have two options for in-car training. With Parent-Taught Drivers Education, you can start in-car instruction with your parent, step-grandparent, step-parent, foster parent, grandparent, or legal guardian. Or, you can take driving lessons with a DPS / TDLR-approved driving school, like ours.
