Driver's Ed for Adults
Adult 6-Hour Driver Education Classroom ($100) for 18- to 24-year-old Students (Required by Texas State Law) and Applicants older than 24 (Recommended)
Texas State Law requires anyone who is 18 to 24 years old to complete a 6-Hour Adult Driver Education Classroom Course. During this 6-Hour Classroom Course, you will take the Road Rules and Road Signs Written Exams. After successful completion of the course and these 2 exams, AVA Driving School will give you your unique Adult Driver Education Certificate of Completion to present at any DPS Office, Driver License Division. DPS accepts this form as proof of compliance with the law and processes your application for a Driver's License, first issuing your Learner's License. Once your Learner's License is issued, you may apply to take a Driving Skills Test. AVA Driving School also gives the Driving Skills Test.
It is recommended that anyone 25 or older take the 6-hour Adult Driver Education Course in order to arrive at DPS with the Certificate of Completion. With the Certificate you are not required to pass a written exam at DPS.
