Each class and driving time is 2 hours long. Classroom hours will be at the same time each day. Depending on the schedule you choose, you will participate in a 3 week class Monday-Friday and one Saturday morning on the third week. Or if you take a fall class, you will attend a 4 week class Monday-Thursday.
DRIVING (7 hrs Driving, 7 hrs Observation In-Car)
You will have 7 lessons, 2 hours per lesson.
CANCELING DRIVE TIMES
If you need to change or cancel a drive time you must sign into your Drive Time Reservation account. Drive times for Tuesday – Saturday must be cancelled 24 hours in advance. Sunday, Monday or holiday drive times must be cancelled the previous business day. Example. Sunday drives must be cancelled the previous Friday by 3:00 pm.
A student may miss a total of 5 days of class without being dropped from the course (this is a Texas law, not ours.) Each missed class must be made-up.
Example: If a student misses Lesson 6 they can make up day 6 when the next scheduled class begins. You can visit our Make Up Classes page for a list of make up dates and times. You have 240 days from the date you started class to complete all makeup work. If you do not complete the makeup work TEA requires us to cancel the student’s permit.
CONTRACT EXPIRATION DATE
Students have 240 days (8 months) to complete the course. This includes the classroom, make-up lessons and behind-the-wheel. The 240 day start date will be from the first day of class. (This is a TDLR rule.)
