Get your license without visiting the DPS



May 9, 2020

New drivers can now get their license without horror of visiting DPS

     Is it time to get your driver's license? Are you full of dread at spending hours waiting in line at the Department of Public Safety

As a result of Texas Governor Greg Abbott's proclamation declaring a state of disaster for all counties in Texas due to COVID-19 and in cooperation with state and local governments to reduce the community spread of COVID-19, all Driver License Offices are closed. 

Even though the offices are closed, there's still a new way to get a license.

If your teen has a learner's permit and waiting to get their license, they can now take the driving test through a third-party provider and mail in their paperwork, instead of standing in line at the DPS.

They will have to provide documentation including:

1. A minor or adult driver education course certificate, as required for all teen drivers under 18 and all adult drivers under 25

2. An Impact Texas Driver (ITD) program certificate showing completion of the distracted driving course

3. The results of a driving test completed by a Third Party Skills Test (TPST) provider

4. A completed driver's license application

5. A check or money order for the fee

Due to school closures, the Verification of Enrollment will not be required for minors to complete this process.

This new process also applies to those who are looking to get a commercial learner's permit or an endorsement on their commercial driver's license.

If you have a license that expired on or after March 13 of this year, you also get an extension.

Miss the rite-of-passage at the DPS experience
