Parent Taught Driver Education Explained

Meet Texas DPS driver ed requirements with PTDE.

Parent taught driver education (PTDE) is a convenient and effective way for new drivers ages 14 to 17 to take care of driver education without having to go to a physical classroom.

The Benefit of Parent Taught Driver Education

Texas Drivers Ed Courses

Our Texas Parent Taught Driver Education course is completed alongside your TDLR-Parent Taught Driver Education Packet. Between these two resources you will have thorough instructions and help so your teen can learn safe driving practices and earn a Texas learner's permit.

Who Can Teach My Teen?

Per the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, instructors must be the student's parent, step-parent, grandparent, step-grandparent foster parent or legal guardian appointed by a court of competent jurisdiction. A power of attorney is not legally sufficient.
