Who is this for?

National Driver Training offers an online course for 14 to 17 year-olds. This course allows the student to complete the classroom portion completely online by logging into any computer or mobile device and completing our course. Progress is automatically tracked across all devices. Families can choose to do the classroom portion before beginning the in-car instruction or they can do them concurrently once the student reaches age 15, has completed the first 6 hours of instruction and passes the online permit test. The online DPS permit exam is included FREE with this package.


What Do I Do After the Classroom Is Complete?
Upon completion of our course, the student will have met the required 32 hours of classroom education and if they have not already, they can now start the behind the wheel instructor led course.


What Are My In-Car Instruction Options
There are two options for families. They can go through an approved drivers education company to complete the 14 hours of in-car instruction or parents can register with the DPS to do this portion of the training (there is a $20 fee to register). Regardless of what option you select, you will still need to complete and additional 30 hours of driving with a parent or licensed adult 21 years or older (who has had a license for a minimum of 1 year). The total requirement for in-car driving is 44 hours.

What is the difference between Parent-Taught and Online.
We are glad you asked because this is perhaps the most confusing part of the whole process. If you elect to do the online course, the State of Texas requires an initial 14 hours of in-car instruction. Seven hours are for instruction and seven hours for observation. These 14 hours must be completed by a licensed driving instructor. Many families feel more comfortable having an instructor teach the basics of driving with their new driver. The online program is a great option if this is your plan. However, if you intend to do all of the in-car instruction with your student, then the parent-taught course is best for you!
