4 | Go, Drive, Be Free

If you don’t feel ready to take the driving test right away, you can present your documents at the DPS and get an adult permit. This will allow you to practice driving with other licensed adults until you’re ready to go back and take the road test. If you are ready to get your unrestricted license, all you have to do is pass the behind-the-wheel test. Hit the open road and breathe in the sweet, sweet smell of freedom.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does this course include the state-approved DPS written test?

The state-approved DPS written test will be provided to you at the very end of the six-hour course (8 levels). This means that you won’t need to take the written test at the DPS! The test will consist of 30 multiple-choice questions. You have one hour to complete the test and must score at least 70% or better (at least 21 out of 30 questions correct) in order to pass and receive a Certificate of Completion from Aceable.If you fail the written test, you can take it again 24 hours later. There is no limit on how many times you can take it and you don’t need to pay again to take it more than once.

Am I required to complete any driving hours before getting my license?

Adults in Texas aren’t required to show proof of a set number of behind-the-wheel practice hours completed. However, you do need to take a driving test in order to get your license. Therefore, if you’ve never been behind-the-wheel or aren’t quite comfortable with your driving skills, it’s recommended that you get a permit before getting your license. That way you can practice driving and return to the DPS when you’re ready to ace the driving test.
