Texas Parent Taught Drivers Ed (PTDE)

What is the concurrent method?

Aceable’s Parent Taught Drivers Ed program falls under the concurrent method by default. What does this mean?

It means that you are eligible to get your permit after finishing Level 1. After passing the DPS written test at the end of Level 1, we will email you a DE-964 Certificate to use at the DPS to get your permit.

After getting your permit, you will finish the rest of the course and work on your behind-the-wheel hours.

This method is great because you can get your permit without finishing the course. It makes the process for getting a license faster since you can work on the course and your driving hours “concurrently” rather than completing the course first and then your driving hours.
