Defensive driving classes are offered by course providers,
businesses that must be licensed and bonded with the state of Texas.
The classes themselves are taught by licensed instructors. The
instructors are required to hold defensive driving teaching
certificates and to have at least 24 hours of driver safety training.
In addition, they must be of good reputation and have a valid driver’s
license that has not been suspended or revoked in the past 5 years.
Each year, they must complete mandatory continuing education classes
and have their licenses renewed by the state.
In Texas, defensive driving
courses are regulated by the Texas Education Agency. The TEA regulates
schools, approves curriculum, licenses instructors and handles
complaints. Driving University is a TEA-approved course provider.
