Questions About Driving in Texas
If I am absent for a day or two from a driver education school, may I get an excused absence and miss those classes?
No. To obtain a Texas driver license prior to the age of 18, all driver education hours in both the classroom and in-car must be attended or made up. Therefore, all absences must be made up no matter if the absence is excused or unexcused. Each school is responsible for developing a make-up plan based on state guidelines.
Schools must limit the number of absences that are allowed and must require students with excessive absences to re-enter or repeat the course.
