Graduated License Program
In addition to driver education, Texas requires teen students to participate in a driver license program which gradually increases their driving privileges as they age. The Graduated Driver License Program is comprised of two phases, and students obtain two preliminary licenses before eventually obtaining the full driver license as an adult.

Phase I: After completing the required hours and passing the DPS written exam, the DPS will issue the student a learner license. Once a learner license is obtained, the student: 
  • Must be accompanied by a licensed driver at least 21 years of age when operating a vehicle
  • Must maintain a learner license for six months without suspension. If the license is suspended, the initial six-month period is extended by the number of days suspended
  • May not operate a vehicle while using a wireless communication device, except in case of emergency.

Phase II: The entire curriculum must be mastered and the student must pass the drive test to obtain a provisional license. During this phase, driving privileges are restricted until their 18th birthday. Once a provisional license is obtained, the student may not drive: 
  • With more than one passenger in the vehicle under the age of 21 who is not a family member
  • While using a wireless communication device, except in case of emergency
  • Between midnight and 5:00 a.m. unless it is necessary for the student to work, attend or participate in a school-related activity (sorry, prom is not a school-related activity), or due to a medical emergency
  • Once the student turns 18, driving privileges are no longer restricted

Permit Process
If you have opted for the “Concurrent” method of instruction, your student must successfully complete Module 1 (6 Hours of Classroom Instruction), the Module 1 test (minimum score of 70%) and be at least 15 years of age to test for their learner license/permit. 

If you opted for the “Block” method of instruction, your student must successfully complete Modules 1-12 (32 Hours of Classroom Instruction), the Modules 1-12 tests and be at least 15 years of age to test for their learner license/permit.

Once ready for the “Permit/Learner License” test, you will need to take your student to your local DPS office for a “Vision” exam and their “Learner License/Permit” test. You will need to verify and comply with all current DPS requirements.  

When Ready:
  1. Print the DE-964 Certificate in COLOR
  2. Make sure to SIGN & DATE before going to DPS
