Texas Adult Drivers Ed

What do I bring to the DPS for my license? (I don’t have/need/want a permit)

Here are the essentials to bring with you:

  • DL-14A: Application for Driver License or Identification Card
  • Proof of identity and lawful US presence or citizenship: valid US passport OR your official birth certificate, social security card, and Texas ID card.  Click the link for more examples.
  • Your social security card: If you can’t find the original hardcopy card, you’ll need to order a new one. If you haven’t been issued a Social Security Number (SSN), you’ll need to fill out the Social Security Affidavit at the DPS office.
  • Proof of Texas residency (bring two): deed, mortgage statement, valid and unexpired Texas voter registration card, utility bills, etc.
  • Marriage license, divorce decree, or court ordered name change: Only if you’re using a name other than what’s on your birth certificate
  • Proof of Texas vehicle registration and financial responsibility for each vehicle that you own (ex: car insurance) OR a statement saying that you do not own a motor vehicle (items 15 and 16 in the DL-14A form) – Your name does not need to be on the car insurance
  • Certificate of Completion from Aceable: We email this to you. Your certificate will have a ‘P’ showing that you’ve already passed the written knowledge test in our course and don’t have to take it again at the DPS.
  • Your Impact Texas Drivers program certificate (expires after 90 days)
  • $25 Driver License Fee
  • For your driving test
    • If you are taking your driving test at DPS, bring a vehicle that meets the requirements of the “Vehicle Assessment” section of page 2 of this DPS brochure.
    • If you took your driving test at a driving school, bring your driving test results.
