Learn Adult Licensing Process

Texas requires adults aged 18-24 to complete a 6 hour theory course as well as a Road Test. Adults over the age of 25 must pass a written test and the Road Test. By combining the theory requirement with in-car driver training, you’ll be better prepared for the Road Test. SafeWay offers the 6 hour adult course online with convenient local drive sites in your neighborhood!

Apply for Your Permit

To get your permit, you will need to receive the ADE-1317 from your course provider. You will take this certificate to DPS along with the other required identification documents. During your DPS appointment, be sure to communicate to the DPS officer that you want your permit for practice purposes as opposed to scheduling your Road Test.

Age Doesn't Equal Experience

Having celebrated a certain number of birthdays does not make you a safe driver. You only become a safe driver by spending hours practicing in the car with a certified, professional driving instructor. Be sure to enroll in the best program for your safe driving future, regardless of your age.
