Adult Driver Education
As of March 1, 2010, anyone age 18 through 24 who does not have a valid driver license from another state or country must complete an approved driver education course and a driving skills test to become a licensed driver in Texas. Applicants must submit a certificate proving successful completion of a driver education course approved by the Texas Education Agency under Sections 1001.101 (a) (1), 1001.101 (a) (2), or 1001.1015, Texas Education Code.
Senate Bill 1317, passed by the 81st Texas Legislature in 2009, created this requirement and authorized the development of a six-hour adult driver education course to meet the needs of this group of drivers.We here at Behind the Wheel Driving Academy LLC. offer the State Mandated Course.
Applicants presenting proof of successful completion of an approved course under Sections 1001.101 (a) (2) or 1001.1015 are not required to submit to the written highway signs and traffic laws test, if these parts have been successfully completed as part of the driver education course, but must still pass the driving skills examination.
The provisions of this law apply only to a first-time Texas driver license applicant. Persons presenting a valid license from another jurisdiction are not required to submit proof of completion of an approved course.
A driving safety course or drug and alcohol driving awareness program are not acceptable to meet this requirement.
This change in law does not affect applicants ages 15 to 17, who are still required to complete a driver education course to be licensed.
