Individuals between 18 and 24 years of age are required to complete a driver education course and present the original certificate of completion at the driver license office. A driver education course is not required for individuals who already hold a valid driver license from another U.S. state, U.S. territory, or Canadian province or from France, South Korea, Taiwan, or Germany (i.e. countries with license reciprocity agreements with Texas).
When applying for a license, the driving test is required. The knowledge test will be waived if it was completed during the driver education course.
Driver Education options are available at Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) Driver Education and Safety.
