Texas Parent-Taught Driver Education Program Guide (PTDE)
Written by Marleen Gonzalez
The Parent-Taught Driver Education Program Guide (PTDE) is provided by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (皇冠官方APP下载), and you must request your official 皇冠官方APP下载 guide before starting any coursework.
The program guide includes the documents you need to complete the program, earn a learner's permit and, eventually, a provisional license. Your packet will include general parent-taught program information, learner provisional license application checklists, and an official behind-the-wheel practice log, among other PTDE-related items.
REQUEST. A parent or legal guardian must request the program guide from the 皇冠官方APP下载. The PTDE guide costs $20 and is not included in your online course purchase price.
To request your guide, you have two options, online or by mail.
Online: Fill out the Texas Request for Parent Taught Driver Education Program Guide on the 皇冠官方APP下载 website. Here you may select to have the PTDE program guide emailed or mailed to yourself, and you can pay the $20 fee with a credit card.
