Taking Texas Adult Drivers Ed

If you have never been licensed and are a Texas resident under 24 years of age, you will be required to complete an adult drivers ed course before you can apply for your driver's license.

If you are an adult between the ages of 18 and 24 years of age, you have two options:

  • Adult Driver Education Course
  • Traditional Driver Education Course

The traditional driver education course is required for minors. It includes extensive behind-the-wheel and classroom training, so that minors can learn the fundamentals of operating a motor vehicle and driving safely and legally on the road. However, adults are not required to complete the traditional education course. If you are in the process of getting your license, you have the option of taking an adult driver education course, though it must be approved by the State of Texas.

At Virtual Drive, we offer just such a course.

Texas Adult Driver Education Online

If you are 18-24 years of age, we recommend that you take an online Texas adult driver education course. A traditional driver education course involves 32 hours of classroom instruction; by comparison, a TAE (Texas Education Agency)-approved online driver education course can be completed in just six hours. The benefits are clear. If you are looking for a program that is convenient, easy to take, satisfies the state's classroom requirements, and can be completed quickly, an online driver education course is for you.

When it comes to options, you have many. In fact, we offer an online Texas adult driver education course at Virtual Drive – and though we may be biased, we believe that it's one of the best on the market. Our course has been designed with your needs in mind. We have created the course to be as convenient and easy as possible to complete, and we are confident you'll appreciate our approach. And unlike many other driver education courses, our courses can be validated online. Some classes require you validate the course in person at a UPS store or via a notary public. Not so with Virtual Drive.

Choosing the Right Drivers Ed Course

If you are seeking behind-the-wheel training and a week-long, in-class course, then the online Texas adult driver education course may not be for you. However, if you are interesting in satisfying the state's requirements in a quick and easy manner, do not require behind-the-wheel training, and would like to complete your training from home, we strongly encourage you to consider our online class. We know that you have many options when it comes to choosing a TEA-approved Texas adult driver education course, but we think that you'll find ours to be the best
