Schedule an Appointment with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)

Submit the adult drivers ed completion certificate to ANY DPS to receive the B-Restricted License with your photo.

    • The B-Restriction requires a licensed adult over the age of 21 to be present in the front seat.


Schedule your DPS appointment at

  • Select Service "Apply for First time Texas DL/Permit"
  • DFW locations typically book these initial appointments 2-3 months in advance
