Adult Driver Education-Only $85

Behind the Wheel Driving Academy offers the Six-hour Adult Driver Education Course.  We administer the knowledge tests which will be waived when you take your driving exam at the DPS.  Course is offered in both English and Spanish.

Individual or group lessons available.  Give us a call for more information and to make an appointment.


Many of our students who have completed our Adult Driver Education Course have little or no driving experience.  Once they acquire their permit, they schedule hourly driving lessons to gain driving experience prior to taking the driving exam at the DPS. By appointment only and hourly charges apply.

Please call us for more information.

Individuals between 18 and 24 years of age are required to complete a driver education course and present the original certificate of completion at the driver license office. A driver education course is not required for individuals who already hold a valid driver license from another U.S. state or U.S. territory, or from Canada, France, South Korea, or Germany (countries with license reciprocity agreements with Texas).


When applying for a license, the driving test is required. The knowledge test will be waived if it was completed during the driver education course. 

(Behind the Wheel Driving Academy will provide the required Knowledge Test.)


There are two types of driver education for adults:

  1. Six-hour adult driver education course which can be taken either online or in the classroom
  2. Traditional driver education course offered through a driver training school (this course is recommended for individuals who want additional behind-the-wheel and classroom training)
