Road Test Requirements
- You must be between the ages of 16-24 and have completed a full driver education course (not the 6 hour adult course) and received a DE-964.
- All students must complete the required two hour Impact Texas Teen Driver (ITTD) program that the DPS has added as a prerequisite for road testing. This is a new course required by the DPS for drivers taking the road test after 9/1/14 from third party testers.

How to Easily Schedule Your Pre-Test (Practice Test)
- For the best results, we recommend that you schedule a Pre-Test 30 minutes prior to your scheduled Road Test appointment.
- The Pre-Test is a practice test administered by Mr. Patrick Barrett or one of his sons or associates (who are licensed instructors). During the Pre-Test, we can make corrections in your driving that will aid you in scoring better on the test and help you become a safer driver. During the actual test Mr. Barrett (or our associate examiner) is prohibited from helping or coaching you or even answering questions except those concerning directions (state rule).
- Once you register for your Road Test appointment, you can schedule a Pre-Test appointment for $135. You can schedule you Pre-Test by calling us at 1-800-562-6405 (M-F, 10-5).
