HOUSTON, TEXAS (KPRC) - The state of Texas is making it faster for teens to get their driver's license and for Texans to get through the Department of Motor Vehicles.
The Texas Department of Public Safety Monday will begin giving teens their driver's education road test without having to wait in line at the DMV. The first tests will be given at the DMV officers on Fry Road in Katy and on Fuqua in southeast Houston.
Testing will be given by an instructor who has been certified by DPS and should take less than 30 minutes.
The new project is expected to expand to other locations.
Senate Bill 1705 from the last legislative session authorized the DPS to allow driver education schools to administer the driving skills test because of numerous complaints of long wait times and long lines at the driver license office.
