Which Driver Education Course is Right for Me?

Written by Staff Writer

Need help deciding which course to take? The first factor is age. If you are 18–24 years of age, then our Adult Driver Education course is for you since you don't need a learner's permit. 该课程对25岁及以上的成年人是自愿参加的,但强烈建议所有首次驾驶和新手驾驶.

If you're between the ages of 14 and 17, you can choose between our Online Driver Ed and our Parent-Taught Driver Ed. 这两门课都能让你拿到德州驾照,但方法不同. Let's compare them:

Parent-Taught Driver Ed (PTDE)

PTDE 让学生和家长共同努力,教育学生安全驾驶的重要性,了解道路规则. 它允许家长或法定监护人与学生一起工作,以满足德克萨斯州许可和法规部门(cq9跳高高中大奖视频)要求的44小时的驾驶。.

对于PTDE,每个学生和家长都需要通过填写cq9跳高高中大奖视频申请来获得批准. Once approved, the cq9跳高高中大奖视频 will send you a Parent-Taught Driver Ed Program Guide. Once you receive your cq9跳高高中大奖视频 guide, 你可以开始申请你的第一个德克萨斯州学习许可证和驾驶执照所需的在线课程材料. 15-17岁的青少年在完成第一个课程模块后就可以申请他们的学习者许可证. The online learner's permit exam isn't included in the price of the PTDE course, but students can opt to add it when ready, allowing them to skip the DPS.

Online Driver Ed

The Online Driver Ed 课程是为想要自己完成国家安全驾驶学习要求的学生设计的, without the aid of a guardian or parent. Teens can begin their online driver education immediately. 15-17岁的学生可以在完成第一个课程模块后参加在线学习者许可考试——这是本课程包的一部分. No need to test at the DPS!

To satisfy the state-required 44 hours of behind-the-wheel driving, 德州在线驾校的学生必须从驾校获得这项指导, or opt to add our Behind-the-Wheel course. 这门课程提供了一个负担得起的选择,因为它让父母或法定监护人训练学生,而不是选择在传统的驾驶学校接受训练, which can be costly.
