Driving Practice Test
0 of 30 questions completed
As the biggest state in the continental United States, it could take you years to traverse every inch of Texas. If you want to make your way around the state, you’ll want to earn your Texas driver’s license. To do so, you’ll need to pass the Texas Graduated Driver License (GDL) program. Texas residents can start this process when they’re fifteen years of age by applying for a driver’s license at a Texas DPS office (more information on finding your nearest location below). Aspiring drivers will need to pass their permit test, complete a state-approved driver education course (there are several options), and then pass the written Texas driving test and road test where you’ll show off your driving skills. To pass your test on the first try you’ll want to get prepared by taking a practice test like the one available below. You will be presented with 30 questions and you must answer 21 questions correctly in order to pass. There is no time limit. You may not go back once you answer a question.

How To Get A Texas Drivers License
The next step is to get your Texas Learner License. To get a Learner License, you must be at least 15 years old and completed the classroom portion of driver’s Ed. If you have a learner’s permit and you are moving from another state, you will need to call the Texas Department of Public Safety at 512.424.2600 to determine if your permit transfers to Texas. If so, follow the rest of the instructions below. You must complete 32 hours of classroom instruction driver’s Ed. Your options for driver’s Ed include school provided, certified driver training school, or at-home online program taught by a parent. If you took driver’s Ed at your out-of-state school, you’ll need a letter stating that you completed that program.
Next, you can take the written exam. If the exam was part of your driver’s Ed course, you do not have to retake it. Here’s what to bring:
- Proof of identity
- Proof of Texas residency
- Proof of social security number
- Completed Verification of Enrollment and Attendance form (or Diploma or GED)
- Completed application
- Completed driver’s Ed forms
- $16 for the fee
All the forms are available for download on the DPS website.
Once you have your learner’s license, you must log 30 hours of driving time, including 10 hours of night driving with a licensed driver age 21 or older. Then you may apply for an intermediate/provisional license. With your provisional license, you cannot drive between the hours of midnight and 5 am, you cannot have more than one person under the age of 21 in the vehicle with you unless they are family members, and you cannot use a cell phone or hands-free device while driving. Before getting your provisional license, you must also pass the Impact Texas Driver (ITD) program.
There is also a Minor Restricted License available to Texas teens with an ill family member.

How To Pass the Texas Driver’s License Test
If you want to walk into that drivers license office and pick up your license after only one try at the Texas driving test, you’ll need to prepare properly. The following tips can help you succeed on your first try.
- Make the Texas DPS Manual (aka the Texas driver’s handbook) your favorite thing to read. This document holds everything you need to know about Texas’s traffic laws and road signs. Make sure you have a copy of the current year’s manual (that link can be found below).
- Pre-test preparation. Beyond studying, you’ll want to make sure you set yourself up for success by making sure you get a good night’s sleep the night before the exam, make sure you’ve eaten, and that you show up early to your test. If you’re scrambling to get there on time, are hungry, or tired you’re just giving yourself an opportunity to perform poorly.
- Take as many Texas practice driving tests as you can. Sites like this one and others provide a nearly endless amount of free practice tests with multiple choice questions about Texas traffic laws and road signs. Use them to your advantage!
