Texas Driver's License

Texas drivers licenseGoing to the Texas DPS office is a lengthy and can be a confusing experience. Our destination services consultant strives to make this visit a positive experience for your employee.

To start the process a copy of the Texas Drivers Handbook will be given to your employee to prepare for the written test. The employee is encouraged to study. Not everyone passes the written test. If your employee does not pass they must repeat the process which would take another half a day.

A prearranged appointment will be set up with your employee for their visit the Texas DPS office.

Having the correct documentation is crucial at the Texas DPS. Prior to the appointment our destination services consultant will go over the documentation your employee will need to bring for their appointment.

On the day of the appointment the destination services consultant will pick up the employee, confirm their documentation and escort them to and from the Texas DPS office. They will remain with the employee during the entire process - document verification, vision test and written exam. Once the written and vision tests has been passed, a driving test appointment will be set up for the employee.

Since the destination services consultant will not be escorting the employee for the driving test, the process will be explained in detail. The employee will arrive at their next appointment to take their driving test in their own vehicle. The vehicle needs to have current vehicle inspection and registration, as well as provide proof of liability insurance on the vehicle.

School Registration
