You order the PTDE packet online directly from the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) – it will not be available at your local DPS. TDLR charges a $20 fee for the packet.
When you order the packet online, you can download it immediately after paying for it. Once you’ve gotten to the purchase confirmation page, there will be a link to download your packet. TDLR also emails you a receipt which also contains the link to download the packet right away. If you requested for TDLR to mail the packet to you, it takes about 2-3 weeks to receive it.
