A learner's permit, also known as learner license, allows student drivers to legally practice while accompanied by a licensed driver. Applicants who are under the age of 25 are required to complete an approved driver education course. To get a driving license in Texas, you must pass a written and driving test in addition to a vision screening. The Texas DMV knowledge test covers the information found in the Texas Driver's Manual, and includes questions on road rules, traffic laws, road signs, and safe driving practices. The Texas DMV written test consists of 30 questions, and you must correctly answer at least 21 questions (70%) to pass.
