     What does this mean for you?  It means that you don’t have to go to the DPS to take the Road Skills Test (driving test) if you meet the eligibility requirements for your age group. It also means that you can schedule your test at your convenience without having to wait in line, increased privacy, and If you have previously taken the Road Skills Test at a Texas DPS Office, but failed, you can retest here without a long wait for another test date.

     All drivers who take the Road Skills Test must go online and complete the MANDATORY “Impact Texas Teen Drivers (ITTD)” program or the Impact Texas Young Adult Drivers (ITYD) program. After completing the video class, students will need to print and sign the course completion certificate which will be one of the required documents for the Road Skills Test.
