Why choose us instead of an online, parent taught program?

Our students are at an advantage over online courses due to one-on-one instruction in a live, interactive classroom setting with interaction with others about drivers ed.

Student participation in a live class helps make sure they are doing the work themselves and succeeding. We often hear parents speak of online programs but many are never sure their child did the work themselves or even working on the program.

We are locally owned and operated. We are professional teachers and driver ed. instructors, here to answer your questions and maintain our office to provide you support. 

Our classroom teachers are college graduates, who are also certified in drivers ed. instruction.

We work hard to prepare students to drive in an ever increasingly dangerous and fast- pace environment with superior classroom instruction and hands-on Behind The Wheel training.

Our next 32 hour classrooms will starting January at each of our locations. Class is held for 17 days. Call us at 936-634-9259 for info and to reserve a seat. Students may attend any classroom location.


Upon completion of our 32 hour classroom course with our certified instructor, your student will take the Texas D.P.S. written test with us. You then take your child to the DPS office to be finger-printed and photographed to receive their beginners driving permit. At that point, they may begin the behind the wheel portion, also known as Phase 2 of drivers ed..  You may schedule with us for the 14 hour Behind the Wheel curriculum in one of our certified cars with a certified instructor at the time you register for a classroom , or any time later.  We take care of the details of paperwork, as well as the Behind the Wheel instruction if you choose us over parent taught.
