New requirement for Texas driver's license

The Texas Department of Public Safety has announced a new requirement to obtain a Texas driver's license -- a one-hour driving course to educate drivers on the dangers of distracted driving. The Impact Texas Young Drivers course will be required for certain drivers beginning Sept. 1.

"Driving is one of the most dangerous things we do on a daily basis, and it should command our undivided attention," said DPS director Steven McCraw. "This new component of the department's distracted driving initiative uses research and compelling true stories to highlight the many risks facing drivers. This important program is designed to provide Texas drivers with critical information to help keep their focus on driving -- and to ultimately save lives on Texas roadways."


Starting Sept. 1, all skills examination applicants 18 and older must complete the free ITYD course and obtain proof of course completion prior to taking the driving skills examination. In addition, drivers 18 to 24 must complete the six-hour adult driver education course prior to the skills examination.

ITYD is the second course offered through the Impact Texas Driver program, which was developed by DPS in 2015 to help save lives through awareness and education related to distracted driving. The first course launched under the ITD program was Impact Texas Teen Drivers, which drivers ages 16 and 17 are required to complete.

The DPS website notes the course is not required for drivers 25 and older but is highly recommended.

A third course, Impact Texas Adult Drivers – specifically for drivers 25 and older – will be announced in 2018.

In 2016, according to the Texas Department of Transportation, there were 109,658 crashes in Texas involving distracted driving. More than 3,000 people were seriously injured as a result, and 455 died. These crashes were highest among new and younger drivers ages 16 to 34.
