Students may enroll in the Complete Course, Classroom Only or Behind the Wheel Only. Students are encouraged to register before the first day of class. The listed date/times are for classroom instruction only. Behind the wheel instruction and simulator training will be scheduled with each student at times other than the actual class times listed below. (32 hours) Athens location: eight hours of driving (4 driving, 4 observing), and 12 hours of simulator. The Palestine location does not provide simulator training but does provide additional behind the wheel training for a total of 14 hours (7 hours driving, 7 hours observing). Pre-Requisites: Student MUST be at least 15 years old. At the time students take the test for their learner’s permit, DPS will require an official birth certificate with seal, original Social Security card, and proof of school enrollment form (VOE). A REPORT CARD IS NOT ACCEPTABLE for proof of enrollment. Proof of school enrollment form is available from the student’s high school and should not be over 30 days old. Possible substitutions for a birth certificate are U.S. Passport, or Texas ID card. Students must provide a U.S. document that proves legal residency. At the DPS office, you must prove that either your residence or your domicile is in Texas and that you have lived here for at least 30 days in order to apply for an original Texas non-commercial driver license or ID card. You must prove your Texas residency by showing two acceptable documents that contain your name and residential address. One of the documents must prove that you have lived in Texas for at least 30 days unless you are surrendering a valid, unexpired driver license from another state; then the 30 day requirement is waived. For a list of acceptable documents visit http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/DriverLicense/ residencyReqNonCDL.htm . (These documents are not required to enroll, but will be required when you go to get your license or permit.) Contact the Department of Public Safety to clarify any questions regarding eligibility prior to enrollment. FAILURE TO PROVIDE THE DOCUMENTS THAT DPS REQUIRES AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME AFTER CLASS BEGINS WILL PREVENT THE STUDENT FROM CONTINUING CLASS. ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING STATE LAW OR REGULATIONS SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY. Tuition is not refundable after classes have started. Behind the Wheel Only classes for Adults (18 years of age or above) may be arranged upon request. The cost for an Athens class (4 hours of driving + 4 hours observation + 12 hours simulator) is $325 and the cost for Palestine (7 hours of driving + 7 hours observation) is $325. Please call 903-675-6212 to request a class.
