Under 18

Every teenager who is under eighteen (18) years of age must take a drivers education course in in order to receive his first license. 

Over 18

Drivers Ed in Texas is not required if you are older than eighteen (18). Note: There is an exception. If you are either 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, or 24 years old, and this is your first license, you will need to attend and pass a Texas Adult Driver Education and Safety Course. This law was passed back in March 1 of 2010. The only way to avoid taking this adult course is if you present an active out of state or out of country drivers license.
