What is your refund policy?
For our driver ed courses and behind-the-wheel lessons, refunds are based on what you have not completed. Refunds are subject to an administration fee up to $50. Please check the enrollment contract for details about your program's refund amounts.
The road test is non-refundable.
How long does the enrollment contract last?
Teen contracts last for six months. If you start in the classroom, your contract begins on the first day of class. If you start with the behind-the-wheel lessons, your contract starts the day you enrolled on our website.
How old do I need to be to start the class?
Texas requires you be at least 15 years old to receive a permit. If you are 14 years old, you still have the opportunity to take the course. However, we HIGHLY recommended that if you are 14 years old, that your 15th birthday be no more than 30 days from the first day of class.
To start behind-the-wheel lessons, you will need to have a learner permit prior to enrolling.
What if I need to miss a class?
Teens are allowed to miss up to five class days or 10 classroom hours. These classes can be made up by attending the next time the lesson is held. For example, if you miss day 5, 10, and 13, then you need to come in on day 5, 10, and 13 of another class.
My teen has just graduated or is unable to get a VOE. What should I do?
The VOE can be substituted with a high school diploma. During the summer, DPS will accept the final report card as a substitute.
How does my I schedule drive times?
Register on our website. Once you confirm your registration through email, then you can log into our website to schedule drive times. You will schedule three drive times, two hours each, one a week.
Which car will I use for a behind-the-wheel lesson?
All behind-the-wheel driving lessons will be done in our vehicles. We have a passenger-side brake installed for driving instructor use.
Do I need to provide a vehicle for the road test?
We do not provide a vehicle for the road test. Please bring an insured vehicle that you are comfortable driving to take your road test. The vehicle must have working signals in the front and back of the vehicle, a working horn, license plates in the front and back, and valid insurance. It is not required that the individual taking the test have their name on the insurance, only that the vehicle is insured. If the vehicle has paper or temporary license plates, they are not required to be on the front. However, the plates cannot be expired.
What if the permit expires before I get my road test?
All learner permits expire when individuals turn 18 and must be renewed before we can give a test. Renewals can be done online if the permit has not expired yet; otherwise, it can be done at your local DPS office.
I completed my road test. How do I get my license?
When you pass the road test, you will be given a sealed envelope containing your original driver education documents and their test results. The envelope must be submitted to DPS to receive a Texas drivers license. The envelope is not a substitute for the license. All DPS locations in the state of Texas will accept your sealed envelope. A+ Academy Driving School is listed in Tarrant County. The sealed envelope must be opened by a Texas DPS representative or the documents will be invalidated.
I opened my envelope. What should I do?
You will need to return to our office to have your documents resealed.
