YOU MUST FOLLOW EVERY ONE OF THESE STEPS OR YOU WILL BE REJECTED AT DPS.
To be able to do drive times at home, your parents/teen must first order the Parent Taught Driver’s Education packet from the state. ALL DPS wants is you to follow these steps. You do not need to fill out any login sheets or record times.
Online: here is the link: https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/ParentTaught/PTSelect.aspx order this online. The form you must fill out is titled “Parent Taught Request Form.” There is a fee. Make sure you choose to have the packet sent to you by email. If you choose to have the packet mailed to you it could take up to 2 weeks. This packet might be asked for when you go to the DPS.
