Texas Department of Public Safety Outsources the Road Test in Austin

Share Article

Beginning June 27, 2016, Driver Ed in a Box is offering Third Party Road Test in Austin, Texas.

Teenagers and young adults (ages 16 to 24) who have completed their driver education – both classroom and in-vehicle, now can take the road test without going to the driver license office.

No long lines. No waiting time. Paperwork and testing completed in thirty minutes or less – like Domino’s Pizza, only better!

Driver Ed in a Box (http://www.DPSroadTest.com) through its Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) licensed training school, Collision-Free Driver Ed, has just been recently certified and approved by the Texas Department of Public Safety to administer the official state-approved road test in the Austin area in addition to Frisco.

Applicants who pass the road test administered by Patrick Barrett, author and creator of Driver Ed in a Box (http://www.DriverEdinaBox.com) and his associates, will not be required to take a driving skills (road) test at the DPS office to obtain their driver license.

Over ninety-three percent (93%) of the driver education instructors failed the DPS examiner tests. Consequently, only a small number of driving schools have met the DPS criteria to become authorized organizations eligible to provide road tests.

Senate Bill 1705 from the 2013 legislative session authorized the DPS to allow driver education schools to administer the driving skills (road) test because of numerous complaints of long wait times and long lines at the driver license office.

Driver Ed in a Box’s approved test site in Austin is just east of MoPac Expressway and Slaughter Lane. For information about appointments call 1-800-562-6405 or visit http://www.DPSRoadTest.com.

Additional locations in the Houston area and in Dallas, McAllen and San Antonio are planned for later this year.
