Texas Adult Drivers Ed

What if I want a permit first?

If you’re not ready to take the driving exam and get your license, you still have options!

If you’re 18-24 years old, you can apply for a Texas permit.

If you’re 25 years old or older, you can apply for a License with B-Restriction, which is just state terminology for a permit for adults 25 years old or older.

To apply for your Texas permit as an adult or License with B-Restriction, take all of the required documents with you to the DPS. You can see that list here. You’ll also need to pay a $25 fee and pass the vision exam, but you don’t have to worry about taking the driving exam just yet. Once you have your permit or License with B-Restriction, you can practice driving with any licensed adult 21 years old or older.

When you’re ready, schedule a driving exam at your local DPS or with an approved driving school. Read about scheduling your driving exam here. Click here for tips on preparing for your driving exam.

EXTREMELY HIGH SUMMER VOLUMES WITH COVID - Starting in June and expecting to continue through September, we are experiencing extremely high volumes across chats, phones and email. We have limited phone and chat support hours, and are working hard to serve every student with care. Phone wait times can be up to 30 minutes during peak times, and while we respond to every student contact that we receive, we are currently averaging 2-3 business days to respond. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. For all Coronavirus Impact Updates, please click here.
