Q ) Are the 30 hrs of home practice mandatory?
A ) Yes, these hours are mandatory and are a requirement for your son/daughter to receive their license. These hours can be completed with a relative or family friend as well, as long as they hold a valid drivers license. 1st Priority Driving School can also complete these hours with your son/daughter for an additional fee.
Q ) How long does my son/daughter have to maintain his/her permit? Teenagers are required to maintain their permit for a 6 month period. Before being eligible to take their driving test. In the State of Texas you are required to be 16 yrs of age in order to receive a provisional license. Therefore, teenagers who are 15 yrs of age must maintain their permit until the age of 16 yrs. Teenagers who are 16 yrs of age at the time they take their teen course MUST maintain their permit for 6 months. Students who are a few months shy of turning 18 yrs of age must maintain their permit only until they turn 18 yrs. before being eligible to take their driving test.
Q ) Will my son/daughter be able to drive themselves to school after taking the driving test? Yes, after taking and passing their driving test , teenagers will receive their PROVISIONAL LICENSE . The provisional license allows teens to drive alone , but they do have a CURFEW from 12am-5 am. They CANNOT be driving during these hours unless it is school or work related. Also, your son/daughter is not allowed to drive with more than 1 person who's under the age of 21 yrs . who is NOT a family member. In other words your son/daughter is only allowed to be with 1 friend at a time.
