Methodology 
You may choose ONE of the following two methods of instruction:

CONCURRENT METHOD
BLOCK METHOD
Graduated License Program
In addition to driver education, Texas requires teen students to participate in a driver license program which gradually increases their driving privileges as they age. The Graduated Driver License Program is comprised of two phases, and students obtain two preliminary licenses before eventually obtaining the full driver license as an adult.

Phase I: After completing the required hours and passing the DPS written exam, the DPS will issue the student a learner license. Once a learner license is obtained, the student: 
Phase II: The entire curriculum must be mastered and the student must pass the drive test to obtain a provisional license. During this phase, driving privileges are restricted until their 18th birthday. Once a provisional license is obtained, the student may not drive: 
Permit Process
If you have opted for the “Concurrent” method of instruction, your student must successfully complete Module 1 (6 Hours of Classroom Instruction), the Module 1 test (minimum score of 70%) and be at least 15 years of age to test for their learner license/permit. 

If you opted for the “Block” method of instruction, your student must successfully complete Modules 1-12 (32 Hours of Classroom Instruction), the Modules 1-12 tests and be at least 15 years of age to test for their learner license/permit.

Once ready for the “Permit/Learner License” test, you will need to take your student to your local DPS office for a “Vision” exam and their “Learner License/Permit” test. You will need to verify and comply with all current DPS requirements.  

When Ready:
  1. Print the DE-964 Certificate in COLOR
  2. Make sure to SIGN & DATE before going to DPS
