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 DPS knowledge test covers the information found in the TX DPS Driver’s Manual, and includes questions on road rules, traffic laws, road signs, and safe driving practices.
