What documents are required to obtain a new Texas drivers license? Texas
In addition to all applicable fees, when you apply for your Texas drivers license you must provide:
- Proof of your identity. This can be one primary proof, one secondary and two supporting proofs, or two secondary proofs. (A primary proof, such as an ID card or passport, stands alone; it gives your photo, name, and birthdate without the need for a secondary or supporting document. A secondary document, such as your birth certificate, gives only your name and birthdate. A supporting document includes such documents as a vehicle title or marriage license.)
- Proof of your Social Security number. (Social Security cards can also act as supporting documents.)
- The driver license application. You can pick this up at the TX DPS or download a copy from the DPS Web site.
- Proof of insurance and registration for the vehicle (if you’re completing the driving test portion).
- Proof of school enrollment and attendance (or proof of graduating or obtaining a GED).
- Proof of completing drivers education.
Apply for Your Texas Drivers LicenseOnce you gather all the required documents, call your local TX DPS location to ask about making an appointment to apply – and test – for your drivers license.
