How Do The Spanish Online Driving Courses in Texas Work?

Learning to drive online is a novel concept, but the process is fairly simple.

The exact process depends on the course you take. At present, there are three courses on offer, namely:

  • Texas Adult Drivers Ed Online
  • Teen Driver’s Ed
  • Texas Defensive Driving Online

Texas Adult Drivers Ed Online

Texas Adult Drivers Ed Online course is intended for aspiring drivers aged 18 and above. Here’s how the Adult Driver Ed course works:

1.    Take up and complete the course online

To get started, you need to sign up for the course and complete it online. The signup procedure is straightforward and is as easy as creating a Gmail or Facebook account.

Once you have an account, you can sign up and get enrolled in the course.

The course is based on the Texas Drivers Handbook. In addition to the information presented in the handbook, the course contains info specific to the DPS examination. The exam typically covers topics related to traffic laws, road signs, driving safety, and basic knowledge of operating a motor vehicle. In the course, you’ll learn all these concepts in more detail.

2.    Pass the DPS written exam

After completing the course, you’ll be required to attend the Department of Public Safety (DPS) written examination. The DPS requires that you take the test to demonstrate your knowledge of rules and regulations pertaining to Texas roads. Both existing and new residents are required to attend and pass the exam.

The DPS exam consists of 30 multiple-choice questions. To pass, you need to get 21 of the questions right, which equates to 70%.

Traditionally, you’d had to go to one of the driver license centers across the state to sit for the exam. But with Driving Quest, you can take the exam online from the comfort of your home.

3.    Submit the test results to DPS

If you passed the exam (got 21 questions right), the next step is to present the results at the local DPS office. The things you’d need are:

  • ADE-1317 Certificate (DrivingQuest)
  • ITAD Certificate (Impact course)
  • Social Security Card & Birth Certificate
  • Two utility bills showing proof of address.

The official in charge will verify and complete the formalities like conducting an eye test, getting the fingerprints, taking pictures, etc. At the center, you’ll have to schedule a driving test.

4. Pass driving test

The last step is to pass the scheduled driving test to earn your certificate. As you might have guessed, passing the exam would depend on how well you drive and whether you followed all the rules.

Driving Quest’s other courses follow, more or less, a similar process. The Teen Driver’s Ed course is intended for applicants under the age of 18. In addition to the steps mentioned above, you’ll have to complete a 26-hour online course to earn your driver’s permit. After that, you’ll have to undergo 44 hours of behind-the-wheel training with a driving school.

The defense driving course is for those who want ticket dismissals, insurance discounts, or have work requirements.

How Long Does It Take to Complete the Courses?

The time it takes to complete a course depends on several factors, including the course, time devoted, and how well you grasp the concepts. But on average, most learners finish the course in a few days to a week.

Since the course materials are available online 24/7, you can learn at your own pace and location. The videos and study materials will be made available for 45 days from the date of purchase. Once expired, you’d have to repurchase them to gain access again.

Are Online Courses Delivered In Spanish?

The online driver Ed in Spanish courses are available in both Spanish and English. Since Texas has a significant Spanish-speaking population, Driving Quest has made the videos available in Spanish. Thus, even if you don’t understand or write English, you can still get licensed in the state.

Just make sure that you select the right course type. On the website, you’ll find both English and Spanish versions of the course.

The English and Spanish courses are titled as:

  • Texas Adult Drivers Ed
  • Texas Adult Drivers Ed (Espanol)

To gain access to the course in Spanish, you need to sign up for the latter, with (Espanol) next to the course title.

What Happens If I Fail The Test?

Our online courses are designed to equip you with all the knowledge necessary to crack the written exams. But there are no guarantees made.

So, in case you fail the test, you’ll still have access to the course for up to 45 days. It’s recommended that you go through the videos again and retake the examination.

You can request support online for sections that you find difficult. The team is more than willing to help you out.

What Is The Course Pricing?

The online courses are priced reasonably to reach as many people as possible. While prices vary from time to time, the approximate cost for the courses are the following:

  • Texas Adult Drivers Ed Online – $75
  • Texas Defensive Driving Online – $25
  • Teen Driver’s Ed – $140

You may enjoy discounts on special occasions. Or the prices may go up during certain days.

But rest assured, the courses will always be reasonable and within reach for everyone in the state.
