Do I have to take any written or driving tests to obtain a TX driver license? Texas
Texas Test ExceptionsMost applicants will have to take both a written and a driving test to obtain a TX driver license. There are only two exceptions:
- A teen driver who has completed both the classroom and behind-the-wheel practice portions of drivers education can have his driving test waived. The drivers ed instructor must sign off on this.
- An applicant who is new to the state and already has a valid out-of-state license can, in most cases, exchange that license for a Texas drivers license without having to take either test.
Texas Drivers License TestsIf you don’t fall into one of those categories, you can expect to take the written exam and the road skills portions of the drivers license test.
Written tests are available on a walk-in basis at any DPS location, and you can study the Texas Drivers Handbook as well as take a few practice tests to prepare for the exam. (Texas actually provides a sample test near the back of the handbook.)
To take the driving test, you must might need to make an appointment at your local DPS driver license office. Call ahead for details.
