APEX'SDriving School Philosophy
Being a new driver comes with great responsibility. You are not just responsible for yourself; the responsibility includes your vehicle, your passengers, and the other cars and drivers on the road. Only practical driving experiences behind the wheel will allow you to gain the knowledge and know-how to deal with everyday driving situations – giving you the foundation to become a safe driver for life.
ADULT TRAINING COURSES
Teen Drivers Ed
Is a teenager required to complete a driver education course before receiving a driver license?
Yes. Texas law requires persons under 18 to successfully complete a state-approved driver education course to be eligible for a driver’s license.
Is there more than one way for a teen to complete a Texas-approved driver education course?
Yes. There are three ways to completed your Texas-approved driver education course.
LICENSED DRIVER TRAINING SCHOOLS: The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) regulates driver education schools and can provide information on the driver education (DE) programs provided through them. You can search all available licensed driver education schools at the Active DE School List. If you have a question about licensed driver education schools, you may contact our customer service division at 1-800-803-9202. You can search all available licensed driver education schools through our Driver’s Education Search.
PUBLIC SCHOOLS: Public schools, education service centers, colleges, and universities may offer driver education programs. Contact your local Independent School district for a list of public schools that offer driver education.
PARENT TAUGHT DRIVER EDUCATION COURSES: The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) is responsible for the parent taught driver education program. Parents or legal guardians with an interest in that program may contact our customer service division at 1-800-803-9202. You can search all available licensed driver education schools through our Driver’s Education Search.
How much do the driver education courses cost?
Regular $369.00 But we do provide discounts and run specials
How long is the teen driver education course?
The classroom phase of a driver education course is at least 32 hours which cannot be completed in less than 16 days. The in-car phase consists of 7 hours of behind-the-wheel driving, 7 hours of in-car observation, and an additional 30 hours of behind-the-wheel driving – of which 10 hours must be done at night.
The additional 30 hours of behind-the-wheel driving will be monitored by the parent or guardian and are not required to be provided by a licensed driver education school. However, the hours must be completed in the presence of an adult who holds a valid license, is 21 or older, has at least one year of driving experience, and occupies the seat next to the driver.
What are the timelines to complete a teen driver education course?
If I am absent for a day or two from a licensed driver education school, may I get an excused absence and miss those classes?
No. To obtain a Texas driver license prior to the age of 18, all driver education hours in both the classroom and in-car must be attended or made up. Therefore, all absences must be made up no matter if the absence is excused or unexcused.
Schools must limit the number of absences that are allowed and must require students with excessive absences to re-enter or repeat the course.
