Texas Drivers Ed for Adults 25 and older

Drivers over the age of 25 are not required by Texas law to complete an approved adult driving course, however, you can choose to do so and it will benefit you. If you are a first time driver over the age of 25, you are not alone. It’s not as uncommon as you may think it is.

The easiest way for adults 25 and over to get their license is to enroll in our online Texas adult drivers education course. You get access to all the same course material.

How does Texas adult drivers education work?

Step 1: Enroll in our TDLR Approved Drivers Ed Course for Texas Adults

Start by enrolling in our Texas adult drivers ed course. Our course approval number is #C2636 and is approved by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. There are no delays. Enroll now and start the course immediately. Many of our students complete the six hour Adult driving course in a single day.

Step 2: Complete the six hours of online drivers ed training for Adults

The adult driver course consists of six hours of online training that is divided into short, easy lessons. You can login to or out of your course at any time and complete it at your own pace. You can choose to complete all six hours in one day, or take an hour or two at a time.

Step 3: Pass the DPS written test

The final test in our online Adult driver education course is the DPS written exam. The benefit here is, that rather than having to go to your local DPS office to take the written exam, you can take it in the comfort of your home, office or anywhere you have access to the internet. 90.4% of our students pass the test on the first try. If for some reason you do not pass on the first try, no worries! Simply review the course material again and take the test again when ready.

Step 4: Print your ADE-1317 Adult driver education certificate

After completing the adult drivers ed course and passing the test online, there is an option in your course account to print your adult driver education certificate (ADE-1317). Present this certificate to your local DPS office when applying for your permit or drivers license.

Many other course providers will only mail your certificate and charge extra. We know our students want their certificate quick, so we’ve added an option to print it. If you prefer, we can also mail it (free of charge) by first class mail.

Step 5: Apply for your permit or license

Apply for your permit or license at your local DPS office. In order to receive a Texas drivers license, you will have to pass the DPS road test in a vehicle with a Texas State Trooper.

If you already know how to drive (they are not going to ask how you learned) and feel you are ready to take the driving test, then you can go ahead and schedule it. In larger cities, you may have to schedule it a few days out. In smaller cities, they can often test you on the same day.

If you are not ready to take the driving test yet, then you can apply for a Texas learners permit. This will allow you to practice driving with a licensed adult driver in the passenger seat who is over 21 years of age.
