In-Car PTDE Texas Drivers Ed Course

Students enrolled in a traditional Texas driver education school and complete the 32 hours of classroom or online training, can switch over to our parent taught (PTDE) behind the wheel course.

This in-car behind the wheel training course is approved by TDLR (Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation). Texas drivers education training for teens consists of two parts; the online or classroom instruction and the in-car behind the wheel driver training. The behind the wheel training module is from our Texas Parent Taught Drivers Ed course #107 for teens.

PTDE Behind The Wheel Driver Training

This course includes everything both teens and parents need to complete their in-car behind the wheel training requirements for their Texas learners permit and drivers license. The course includes the mandated 14 hours of parent taught driver instruction with printouts, driving logs for the 30 hours of practice and a complete guide for parents to cover each driving objective with their teen student.

The parent section has been designed to be short, yet informational. The parent (instructor) is provided with their own course that will explain the method of teaching and a review of the material for each of the 7 one-hour lessons. This brief yet informational review will prepare the instructor for the upcoming lesson. In this Texas in-car drivers ed course, you’ll find everything you need to succeed in your driving test in Texas. Our PTDE behind-the-wheel drivers education course is TDLR approved by the Texas DPS.
