How Does Texas Online Drivers Ed Work?

There are two ways you can complete your Texas online drivers ed coursework. You can either sign up for Parent Taught Drivers Ed or Instructor Taught Drivers Ed. We offer both options at Driving School Express. Here are the differences between these two options.

Parent Taught Drivers Ed

Parent Taught Drivers Ed (PTDE) is a unique option available in the state of Texas and serves as a homeschooling option for drivers ed. By choosing this option, students will complete our certified online drivers ed course, then a parent or guardian will act as the behind the wheel driving instructor. We'll guide you through the entire process to make it as easy as possible for you.

How It Works:

Step 1: Order the required Parent Taught Drivers Ed packet from the Texas DPS (we'll help you do this). This guide will walk you through the entire process.

Step 2: Finish the first level of our online drivers ed program, which takes a total of 6 hours. This will prepare you to get behind the wheel.

Step 3: Obtain your learners license at the Texas DPS.

Step 4: Continue to progress through our online drivers ed coursework while you complete all of the in-car practice requirements with your approved parent or guardian. You'll need to complete a total of 44 driving hours behind the wheel.

Step 5: Take and complete the Impact Texas Teen Drivers Program (we'll show you where to get this done quickly and easily). This is a 2 hour video course provided for free by the Texas DPS.

Step 6: Obtain your provisional drivers license!

Instructor Taught Drivers Ed

Instructor Taught Drivers Ed is the more traditional option for taking drivers ed. With this option, you still take our state certified online drivers ed course, but you then complete 14 hours with a Texas certified driving instructor. We have our own driving instructors in most areas, otherwise we will help place you with a good instructor at a local driving school.

How It Works:

Step 1: Sign up for our Texas state certified online drivers ed course. This course takes a total of 32 hours to complete, but you can go at your own pace.

Step 2: Obtain your learners license at a Texas DPS facility. This will allow you to get signed up with a certified driving instructor.

Step 3: Start taking behind the wheel driver training! Here's where the fun begins. We can help you find a certified driving instructor in your area (usually at a nice discount), or you can find your own driving instructor. You'll need to complete 14 hours of behind the wheel training with a certified driving instructor.

Step 4: Get more driving practice with a licensed adult over the age of 21. You'll need to complete 30 hours of driving practice before you can get your provisional drivers license.

Step 5: Get your license and hit the open road!

This was a really great learning experience! This was definitely my first step to becoming a safe driver. Drivers Ed taught me about valuable road laws and how to be a smart, safe driver. I love the little vocabulary games at the each section. It an effective method to show how much I learned. 


"I learned a lot!"

I learned alot about all aspects of driving with this course, I also liked the idea of having 6 months to complete the course. This helped me out alot because I played 3 different sports in high school and this gave me the time that I needed.

Thank you.



The website is very easy to handle. I found everything I needed easily. I loved doing my driving courses online since I could complete it at my own convenience. It taught me a lot and the short videos helped. I would recommend this to anyone!
