In Texas, all new drivers under 18 must complete an approved driver education course before they can be licensed. The state of Texas allows the parent to teach the student using approved curriculum and materials. Teens may begin the program at 14, but will not be able to get a learner’s permit until the age of 15.
Parent-taught driver training has become popular. Once purchased, a state-approved drivers education course educates the student and parent from beginning to end.
