What exactly is Third Party Testing?

The Third Party Skills Testing (TPST) program was implemented September 1, 2014 authorizing Commercial Driver Education schools that meet requirements set by the Department to administer the driving skills examination.

Statutory Authority 37 Texas Administrative Code, Section 15.62

How does this benefit you?  It means that you don’t have to go to 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 sooner, it’s less stressful, more private, and if you have previously taken the Road Skills Test at a Texas DPS Office, but failed, you can retest at a TPST site without a long wait for another test date at DPS. Once you take the road test, we package everything, and you take it to DPS for processing.

How do I proceed?

In order to test with a Third Party Skills Testing (TPST) authorized school you must:

  • Be age 16+ years of age, must have held a valid learner license for a minimum of six months , completed an approved commercial Teen or Parent Taught Driver Education in full, and completed the Impact Texas Teen Drivers (ITTD) video (takes 2 hours—cert will be emailed to you for you to print out)
  • Be 18-24 years of age, must have completed the adult driver education course (6 hour course), have been process through DPS and received a restricted driver license, and completed the Impact Texas Young Drivers (ITAD) video (takes 1 hour—cert will be emailed to you for you to print out)
  • Be 25 years of age or older, have a current restricted driver license, and completed the Impact Texas Young Drivers (ITAD) video (1 hour—cert will be emailed to you for you to print out)

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 Adult Drivers (ITAD) program (see above for your required video). After successfully passing the video, students will need to print and sign the course completion certificate which will be one of the required documents for the Road Skills Test.

Both the ITTD video and ITAD video are FREE and are through the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Impact Texas Drivers website. These certificates expire in 90 days.


We are here to assist you!

Step 1:  Determine which group you qualify under:  Teen (if you took the teen class then you must go by the rules for teen class), Adult 18-24, Adult 25+

Step 2: Review the checklist and make certain you have all required documents

Step 3:  You may pay the required fees online.

Step 4: YOU MUST RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION CALL FOR DATE/TIME. We do not test before 10a.m. but we test on the hour throughout the day.

Step 5:  Show up 10 minutes PRIOR to scheduled exam and park on the side of the building beside the front parallel parking standard (you should be facing Plantation Drive).

Step 6:  Bring in all required documents for approval.

Step 7:  Examiner will check for all required documents, have you sign the DL40, check your insurance (PAPER copy current/no exclusion & must match VIN # on registration date sticker on vehicle), and the following on the vehicle: two plates (front/back—both attached at least 12” from ground—no IN TRANSIT plates), horn, L/R signal lights in front/back, three working brake lights, examiners door must open, seatbelts, and vehicle must be free of excessive debris.

Step 8:  If all is in order, the driving skills test will be given. Examiner will explain what to expect so please ask any questions BEFORE the test begins as once it is started no questions can be answered.


We strive to reduce stress for the student by being clear with all directions and being overall friendly and polite.

Items you will be tested over:

*Right turns, left turns with/without stop sign intersections
*Intersections with Lights
*Right of Way

*Control of Vehicle
*Backing /Reversing

*PARALLEL PARKING ( Provided at Gulf Coast Driving Academy – Lake Jackson. You may practice as much as necessary).

Step 9:  Upon returning to the testing site, park in the back of the lot in the grassy area. Examiner will review your test and, if you passed, you will come inside to get your paperwork in a SEALED, SECURE envelope. DO NOT OPEN THIS ENVELOPE OR DPS WILL NOT TAKE YOUR RESULTS!

Step 10:  Take the sealed envelope to your local DPS office to receive your unrestricted driver’s license!
