Who is required to complete the Texas Online Adult Driver Education program?
First time adult drivers between the age of 18 and 24, who have not previously held a driver license, must complete an approved Adult Driver Education program. After completing the course, individuals under the age of 25 have two options:
- Apply for Texas learner’s permit.
- Schedule Department of Public Safety Road Test (if you have the necessary driving experience).
How does your course work?
The course is a six-hour online program which students can complete at their own pace. You will need a computer and internet access to complete the program. There are 8 modules to complete, the Class C exam, and the final exam.
Will I receive a certificate of completion?
The Final Completion certificate will be available for the student to download and print upon completion of the program. The certificate will allow you to schedule your road test or apply for your learner’s permit if you choose to drive prior to attempting the road test.
What is the Class C exam?
The Class C exam is equivalent to the permit test that is administered at the DPS when you apply for the learner’s permit.
What is the next step after I receive the Final Completion certificate?
Since the program includes the Class C exam, your next step is to apply for your learner’s permit or schedule your road test straight away.
Can I complete the course if I am over 18 years old?
Individuals 18 years and above can enroll in our state-approved online course, fulfilling the mandatory 6 hours of online instruction for those between 18 and 24 years old. Successful completion will enable you to proceed to applying for your learner’s permit or road test. **No certificate of completion will be issued to students over the age of 24.
Is behind the wheel training required for adults?
Behind the wheel training is not required for the Online Adult Driver Education program. After successfully completing the All Star Adult course, passing both the Class C exam, and the final exam, you will receive a certificate that qualifies you to take the road test.
Can I complete my driving practice before I take my road test?
Individuals may not drive until a learner’s permit is obtained. Individuals must complete an approved driver’s course and take the Class C exam to apply for a learner’s permit (or go straight to taking the road test). For more information contact the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Can I take the program if I am 25 or older?
While there is no requirement to complete the program once you turn 25, doing so can provide you with valuable skills and knowledge, contributing to your safety and confidence as a driver!
What if I drop out or want a refund for the program?
No refunds are issued after the start of class. All other approved refunds are subject to a $5 processing fee, can take up to 10 business days, are credited back to the card on which they were purchased and are issued only to the person who paid for the program. A full refund will be issued if All Star must cancel your course/program and cannot provide an acceptable alternative.
*No refund is due to students who have been expelled from an All Star program.
*There is a $30 return check fee for all returned checks.
