REGISTRATION IS BY APPOINTMENT.  PLEASE EMAIL OR LEAVE A VOICEMAIL TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO COME IN TO DO PAPERWORK.  (Office Hours: School Year hours are 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 3:30 to 6:30 on Fridays.  Our Summer hours are 12:30 pm to 6:30 pm Monday through Thursday.  On Fridays, hours are 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm)  Please bring your student with you as they need to sign their paperwork as well.  Please also bring their original birth certificate and social security card (we just want to look at them to make sure you have the correct documents for the DPS and we do not need a copy).  You may start with $150 down.  Second payment of $150 is due when they finish the 3 weeks of class and all makeup and the third payment of $150 is due when they begin their drive times.


Original Birth Certificate or Certified copy (This cannot be a hospital document; it needs to be from a city, state or county; you may also use a passport if it is not expired.) Foreign exchange students should inquire with us what they need to get their permit.

Original Social Security Card (If you have lost the original card, you must go to one of three Social Security Administration locations in the area to apply for a duplicate card. As of August, 2014, the SSA no longer will issue a NUMI form to use at the DPS so you must wait until the original card arrives in the mail to be able to go get the permit. You may register with Metro and begin classes without the card, but you will need to the original card to get a permit and thus not be able to drive until you have your permit. It usually takes only a couple of weeks  for the card to arrive in the mail.)

Original TEA form - As of 9/29/2020, this form is required again by the DPS.  THIS FORM IS NOT NEEDED FOR REGISTERING YOUR STUDENT.  It is also called the VOE form; if you are 15 or older, you can obtain this form from your school's front office, attendance clerk, or counselor. Your student will need it to be unexpired for when they go to the DPS.  However, please make sure your student is eligible to get this form (it is about their attendance in school).  It is ultimately for getting your permit at the DPS. The TEA form expires. It is only good for 30 days during the school year. Once you have requested this form from your school, it takes 24 hours to make the form available to you. If your student is  14 years old, do not get this form until you are close to their 15th birthday or when their appointment is. If their birthday is in the summer, then request it in the last week of school and it will be good until the beginning of the next school year. Please ask us what you need if you are home-schooled or have your GED.

GENERAL INFORMATION (very important):

1. A student is eligible to take the permit test after 3 days of class. After a student has completed classes 1, 2  and 3 a student will take the permit test. We will then  give the results of those tests on the certificate they  will take to the DPS to process their permit. The DPS continues to work by appointment only and you can go to any DPS in the State of Texas.  With your assistance and approval, we will make a DPS appointment for your student to go to the DPS.  At the DPS, the  student will have their picture taken, an eye test and their thumbprints made in order to get the permit.   There is not testing at the DPS at this appointment.  They will also need the following with them when they go to the DPS:
   a. 3 qualifying documents: Birth Certificate, SS card, and the VOE/TEA form. The VOE/TEA form is now required again by the DPS as of 9/29/2020.
   b. DE964 form from Metro along with notarized forms
   c. $16 (cash, check or any credit card) for ages 15, 16 and 17;  $33 for 18 years old and older.
   d. Corrective lenses, if needed (glasses or contacts)
   e. 3 proofs of residency. This can be three different utility bills. These bills will need to have the same address as the one the student is using on their permit. It will not be in their name, only the parent/legal guardian's name. A student can miss class to go to the DPS to process their permit but will have to make up that class.  It will be counted as one of their 5 missed classes.  
2. A student can only miss 5 classes and has to make up the exact class number they missed. If a student misses more than 5 classes, they will have to start over with the classroom portion again. There are no extenuating circumstances or exceptions to this rule mandated by the Texas Dept. of Licensing and Regulation.
3. A student will make up classes after their original three weeks are over.  They can makeup 2 classes in one day as long as they are the class numbers they need.
4. A student has 180 days to complete the entire program, including make-up classes, driving times, observation times and payment.
5. A student can only drive one hour a day but can observe more than one hour a day when needed to make-up missed observation times.
6. A student cannot drive during classroom time and get credit for both.
7. A student is eligible for permit testing after the first  three class days. They must have 6 hours of class before they are eligible so if they miss one of the first three days they will not be eligible until they have done days 1, 2 and 3.
8. A student needs to be a minimum age of 15 years old to get their permit. However, a student can begin the classroom portion prior to being 15. We recommend a student not begin the classes prior to 3 months before their 15th birthday however, a student may legally begin at 14 and a half.
9. Driving times will not be conducted during a student's three weeks of classroom time. Check with us regarding the availability of times and the expected completion date. COMPLETION OF DRIVING TIMES COULD TAKE SEVERAL MONTHS LONGER (especially during peak season times).
10. A parent's or legal guardian's signature is required at registration to take the course.
11. A notary is provided to notarize the necessary documents.
12. Once your student has their permit, please let us know and we will add their name to the list to be called to schedule.  At this time, it is taking many weeks to get drive times.
13. When a student begins their driving times, if they are not able to come to a time, they must let the school know either in person or by phone or email at least 24 hours in advance so that time may be given to another student. If you do not inform us, there will be a $20.00 no-show fee. If a student comes to a driving time without their permit, they will not be able to drive and thus charged the $20.00 no-show fee unless a replacement student can be found.
