What is the fee for a new TX driver license? Texas

Texas Drivers License Fees

The price of a Texas drivers license depends on your age. If you’re:

  • Younger than 18, pay $5. The license expires when you turn 18.
  • 18 or older, pay $24. The license expires in six years.
  • 85 or older, pay $8. The license expires on the second birthday after your application.
You can prepare for all applicable tests (and possibly even avoid additional fees) when you enroll in a drivers education course. At the very least, taking a few practice tests, like the one found in the back of the Texas Drivers Handbook, can help you knock out the written exam the first try.

NOTE: TX waives the driver license fee for veterans who receive 60 percent service-connected disability compensation. If this sounds like you, visit the Driver License Division portion of the Department of Public Safety Web site or contact your local DPS office for details.
