Adult Drivers Ed 25 and older

Drivers over the age of 25 are not required by Texas law to complete an approved adult drivers ed 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 adult drivers ed course. You get access to all the same course material.

How does the Adult drivers education course work?

Step 1: Enroll in our TDLR Approved Texas adult drivers ed course

Start by enrolling in our online drivers ed for adults course. Virtual Drive is a Texas driving school approved by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. Our approval number is #C2636. There are no delays. Enroll now and start the driver training immediately. Many of our students complete their Adult online drivers ed requirements in a single day.

Step 2: Complete the Online Driving Course

Drivers ed 18 & over is divided into short, easy lessons. You can login or out at any time and complete it at your own pace. Choose to complete the drivers ed classes in one day, or take an hour or two at a time.

Step 3: Pass the DPS written drivers license test

The final test in the online adult drivers ed course is the written DPS drivers license test. The benefit here is, that rather than having to go to your local DPS office to take the drivers test, 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 Certificate

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

Many other driving schools will only mail your drivers ed certificate for an extra charge. 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 after completing your online drivers ed class and pass the test. In order to receive a license, you will have to pass the drivers 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 road test, then you can go ahead and schedule your driving test. 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.

Virtual Drive’s Texas adult drivers education course is the quickest and easiest way to get your permit and license. It’s fast, fun, easy and you’re once click away from starting the best course from the best approved online driving school in Texas.
