Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I take an online Texas drivers ed course in order to get my Texas driver’s license instead of a classroom based TX driver education class?

In Texas, getting your Driver License doesn’t have to be an expensive and time-consuming process. Our objective is to provide you with convenient Texas teen drivers ed course options as well as Texas online adult drivers ed options. Online students of online Texas driver ed classes will have access to the course 24 hours a day and 7 days a week and may take the course according to whatever schedule fits their particular needs. With a classroom-based Texas drivers ed class, that is not the case. We make getting your first Texas drivers license a breeze!

What if I take a Texas Drivers License or Texas Learners Permit course and fail, can I re-take it again?

Good news: you are GUARANTEED to pass our affiliate’s online teen drivers ed course or online adult drivers ed course! You won’t have to worry about having to re-take drivers ed if you don’t pass the Texas driving class on your first attempt. And Texas adults, when you take our partner’s online adult driver’s ed course, the final exam is the official DPS exam! This means that you don’t have to worry about standing in line at the Texas D.P.S. and re-taking the exam. Just show up with your adult drivers ed certificate of completion, take your vision test and driving test and get your Texas driver’s license!

I am a new Texas resident. How do I go about getting a Texas drivers license?

If you are over the age of 18 and have a valid driver license from another state, you will have 90 days after moving to Texas in order to get your Texas driver license. You will be required to complete a Texas drivers license application and present it at the TX DPS licensing office in your area. Be sure to bring your driver license from your former state as you will be required to surrender it in order to obtain the new license. If that license is EXPIRED, you will be required to take the DPS written exam AND complete a behind-the-wheel driving exam in your vehicle. If you’re between the ages of 18 and 24, you are also required to complete an online adult drivers ed class. If you are under the age of 18, you will have to take a Texas parent taught drivers ed class and complete the Texas driving test no matter what!

Do you recommend a Texas drivers ed course that is approved by the Texas DPS?

Yes. Our affiliate offers both an approved Texas drivers ed class for teens and an approved Texas adult drivers ed class for adults between the ages of 18 and 25. The online drivers ed courses offered by our affiliate is approved by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), so it satisfies all of the state’s requirements to get your Texas learner’s permit and Graduated Driver’s License (if your a Texas teen driver) or your Texas driver’s license (if you’re a Texas adult driver)!

What is the cost to renew my Texas drivers License?

If you are a Texas driver under the age of 18 and your driver’s license was obtained before September 20, 2010, the cost is $6.00. However, the renewal is only good until your following birthday. If you are a TX driver over the age of 18, the cost is $25.00 and you will not have to renew your Texas drivers license for 6 years. If you are a Texas driver over the age of 85, the cost to renew your Texas driver’s license is $9.00.

If I want to apply for a Texas commercial driver’s license (CDL), do I fill-out the same Texas driver’s license application form as any other new TX license applicant?

No. Commercial driver’s in Texas must complete the CDL-1 form, which is different than the regular Texas driver’s license form. There are also other additional requirements for commercial Texas drivers. We recommend that you review the information on the Texas DPS website for the CDL licensing requirements.

You may complete form DL-43 and submit it via regular us mail in order to renew your Texas driver’s license.
