Instructor Led Texas Drivers Ed Course

Sometimes you just need something that fits YOU! We recognize that YOU are special, so we have developed a course specifically for you and your needs. If you are a parent, you may not want to become involved in a parent-taught course, but you don’t really want to drive your student to class every night for a month either. We believe we have exactly what you are looking for – our 32 hour AMI Virtual Drive Hybrid course.


32 Hour Alternative Method Instruction (AMI)

Our Texas 32-hour AMI course is an alternative instruction program to parent taught teen classes and it is the perfect solution. We call it our Hybrid. This is new in Texas, so you may not have heard of it yet. In fact, Virtual Drive was the first to offer this course in Texas. We can now provide your student the required 32 hours of classroom instruction entirely online, with an online instructor. There is absolutely no parent involvement – that’s right, this is NOT the same as our Texas parent taught drivers ed course.

This eliminates the need for the parent to be actively involved in the most time-consuming part of the process. Let our instructors guide your student all the way through, grade their assignments, monitor their progress and then provide a certificate that will allow them to get their Texas learners permit. Then we will help you determine what the best approach may be to teach them the In-Car lessons. If you decide you can do it, we will make sure you have the right tools. If you decide to send them to a professional school, we will easily transfer them. Either way, life will be much easier with our 32 hour AMI Texas Instructor-led driver education course.
