Texas Now Requires Drivers’ Education Course for New Drivers Aged 18 to 24

A law took effect this week that will affect young drivers getting their licenses for the first time. Until now, driver education classes were required only for drivers under the age of 18. Now those between ages 18 and 24 must must take a six-hour driver education course before they can receive licenses. This change won’t affect a huge number of people, but there has been a trend recently for teenagers to wait until they turn 18 before getting a license. Perhaps part of the reason is to avoid the time and expense of drivers’ education.

This seems like a sensible plan to me, due to the significant percentage of car wrecks caused by drivers aged 18-24, although it may work a financial hardship on some of those new drivers.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
