We charge NO additional fees for our course. However, you will be required to purchase a Request for Parent Taught Driver Education Instructor Designation Service Application from the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR). TDLR charges $20 for this application, which must be purchased before the Parent-Taught Program Guide will be sent to the qualifying parent instructor. Click here to view TDLR's instructions for parents.
You can click the link above to be redirected to TDLR's website. We also provide a link to purchase the application from within our course. In either case, the $20 is not paid to us and no online course provider is authorized to provide this document - you must obtain this from TDLR and your payment goes directly to this government agency. Among other things, this guide contains official state forms and training logs that will need to be filled out while administering the Parent Taught program.
In addition, the Department of Public Safety (DPS) charges a fee before issuing a learner permit and driver's license. Click here to view detailed fee information on the DPS website. As with the designation service application mentioned above, these fees cannot be bundled into the course price, they must be paid directly to DPS at the time the license application is submitted.
The following persons may instruct the Parent Taught program:
- Foster Parent
- Legal guardian
Additionally, a parent, legal guardian, or a judge of a court with jurisdiction over the student can designate a person to instruct the course who meet the following requirements:
- Is at least 25 years old;
- Does not charge a fee for conducting the course; and
- Has at least seven years of driving experience
The following conditions prevent a person from serving as an instructor:
- Convicted of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) in the past seven years.
- Criminal negligent homicide, even probated.
- Six or more points on your driving record.
- Your license has been suspended, forfeited, or revoked in the last three years.
