All Star Driver Education is excited to offer the Texas Class C Exam or DPS knowledge test, as part of our online course. If you don’t know what the class C exam is or if you will need one to drive in Texas, we have provided some answers to your questions.
Who needs to take the Texas Class C Exam?
Anyone looking to get their Texas driver license will need to pass the Texas Class C Exam. Whether you’re a new driver or need to reapply for a driver's license, taking the Texas Class C Exam is mandatory for getting your permit and taking the Texas road test.
What is the difference Between the Texas Parent Taught Course and Teen Online Course?
When a student takes the Parent Taught Course online, a parent/guardian is providing the driving instruction. The parent/guardian must send an application to the TDLR requesting to teach the course. Because the parent/guardian is doing the teaching and drives, the student will be able to take the Class C exam after starting the online class and receive the certificate needed to get the learner's permit right away.
When a student takes the Teen Online Course, they can take the Class C Exam after starting the online class, but must complete the entire class before getting the certificate needed for the learner's permit. This is called a "block-style" class and is self-taught. The certificate is sent to an approved driving school of your choice and will allow you to go apply for a learner’s license. Then you can complete the 14 hours of instructional driving and the additional 30 hours with a parent/guardian.
How many questions are there on the Texas Class C Exam?
There is a total of 30 questions on the Texas Class C Exam, which you will need to answer at least 21 correct to pass the exam (70%).
How many attempts are allowed for the Texas Class C Exam?
All Star allows you to take the Class C Exam three times before having to take it at the DPS. The DPS allows three attempts before having to start the application process again.
What happens if you don’t pass the Texas Class C Exam?
If you don’t pass the written portion of the Texas Class C Exam, you can retake it the next day. Failing the driving portion for the third time means having to enter another application and pay another exam fee.
