Texas Drivers Education and Driving School

In Texas, driver’s education, also called driving school, is a course that the state requires teenage drivers to take before they can get their license. The purpose of the course is to make sure that students have a firm grasp of traffic safety, the rules of the road, and how to operate a vehicle before they actually start driving. Texas driver’s ed classes combine classroom time with actual and simulated driving experience under the supervision of trained professionals. Texas driving school provides students with the knowledge and hands-on experience to be able to pass the written exam for getting a permit, as well as the road test required for getting an actual license.
