Complete Driver Education Course with DSH

The last step to getting your Texas driver's license is passing the driving test. While the prospect of taking the test may make you nervous, stay calm. The more you know about what to expect, the better prepared you'll be to pass. We've outlined the process below to give you an overview of how the testing will be.

Complete the Impact Texas Teen Driver's Course

As of September 1st, 2015 aspiring drivers must complete the Impact Texas Teen Drivers program (ITTD). Without an ITTD certificate of completion, anyone seeking a Texas Driver's License cannot take the driving skill test and you must take the test within 90 days of completing the Impact Texas Teen Drivers course.


Before taking the ITTD program, must complete the online driver's education course in addition to the behind-the-wheel training.


Please note: The 44 hours of behind-the-wheel training are built into the PTDE course with the parent/legal guardian acting as the driving instructor, while the DSH Drivers Ed course allows the student to meet the state's behind-the-wheel requirement by adding on our Behind-the-Wheel training course OR by completing the training with an instructor at a traditional driving school.
