In the past there have been Adult Drivers Ed Courses, but they weren’t required by law. These courses were more for helping students who had never been exposed to the laws of Texas and who needed help with simply passing the Drivers License exam. The results were more and more drivers were unprepared to handle the responsibility of driving a car. Hoping to lower the number of accident and traffic violations inflicting the Texas highways and road, the State Legislature passed a new law thatrequires all Texas residents, age 18 through 24 applying for a first time drivers license to have completed an approved Texas Adult Drivers Education Course. This law was passed due to the rise in accidents and traffic tickets for 18 to 24 year old drivers who had not taken a Drivers Education course when compared to those drivers who had completed a Drivers Ed course.

Approved by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, this course is a shortened version of the Texas Drivers Education course required for teens, ages 15 to 18. The new Texas Adult Drivers Ed course is a 6-hour course that covers alcohol awareness, traffic laws of the state, highway signs, signals and road markings.
In addition, the Texas Adult Driver Education course instructs new drivers in issues commonly associated with accidents including poor decision-making, risk taking, impaired driving, distractions, speeding, use of wireless communication devices and failure to use a seat belt.
After completing our 18-24 Adult Driver Education Course, students will be issued a Certificate of Completion which will be required when applying for their learners permit and/or drivers license. Students who present proof of successful completion of our approved course to DPS will not be required to take the written test covering highway signs and traffic laws but will still be required to pass the driving skills examination (road test).
