How to Teach Parent Taught Drivers Education Course 101

NOTE: BEFORE BEGINNING THE PARENT TAUGHT 101 COURSE, YOU MUST HAVE REQUESTED AND RECEIVED THE PARENT TAUGHT DRIVER EDUCATION PACKET FROM THE TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY (DPS). YOU CAN DOWNLOAD A COPY OF THE DL-92 REQUEST FORM AT:

ANY INSTRUCTION THAT YOU PRESENT PRIOR TO RECEIPT OF THAT PACKET CANNOT BE COUNTED TOWARD THE DPS PARENT TAUGHT DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM.

The following instructions are provided to assist a parent or guardian with the procedures concerning Course 101, a driver education course which was developed by Texas Education Agency (TEA) for use by teachers in public and commercial schools in teaching a 14-17 year old how to drive. Successful completion of this course (32 classroom hours and 14 in-car hours) satisfies one of the requirements for obtaining a driver license in Texas. This course is managed by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), so questions about the course should be directed to your local DPS Driver License Office or the DPS Parent-Guardian Driver Education Office.

Parent Taught Drivers Education Course 101 is divided into 10 Modules. Each Module contains many lessons. Do not get overwhelmed by the length of a Module. Each lesson is only two pages in length and most lessons take a short to medium time to teach depending on the subject being taught.

The Parent/Instructor begins by opening the Student Exams and Worksheets File for Module 1.

STEP ONE: Open Supplement and Worksheet File. The Parent Instructor begins by opening the Module 1-Supplement & Worksheet file.

STEP TWO: Print the Student Exams and Worksheets File.
The Parent/Instructor prints the Student Exams and Worksheets File for Module One and arranges the printed materials beside them on a table next to the computer. Close the Student Exams and Worksheets File after the printing is complete.

The Student Exams and Worksheets File contains all the documents that the student will read or work on while being taught Module One. Note that there are 3 different types of materials in the Student Exams and Worksheets File:

  • Fact Sheets,

  • Worksheets, and

  • Evaluation and Assessment Sheets

STEP THREE: Open the PowerPoint Slides File.
Next, the Parent/Instructor would normally open the Module 1 PowerPoint Slides File. You must must have the PowerPoint program to open this file. If you do not have PowerPoint, you can obtain and present that same information from the Worksheets File where copies are printed.

Skip to Step Five if you do not have PowerPoint.

STEP FOUR: Print the PowerPoint Slides File.
The Parent/Instructor prints the PowerPoint Slides File for Module One and arranges the printed materials beside them on a table next to the computer. Close the Power Point Slides File after printing is complete.

STEP FIVE: Open and Read the Lesson Plan - Classroom File. The Parent/Instructor opens and reads the Module One Lesson Plan - Classroom file.

Skip to Step Seven if you are using a CD of Parent Taught Drivers Education Course 101.

STEP SIX: Save the Lesson Plan - Classroom File / Curriculum File.
Parent Instructors who open the file from a webpage are encouraged to save the Curriculum file to their computer hard drive or burn it to a CD. If you are using a CD of Parent Taught Drivers Education Course 101, skip this step

(There is no requirement to print the Lesson Plan - Classroom File. The Parent/Instructor can read the entire course from the computer screen. However, if the Parent/Instructor prefers to work from printed materials, the curriculum can be printed from the CD, or a printed copy can be ordered by submitting an order request form with the required fees to TEA's Publications Distribution Section. The order request form is on the CD or you can click on the link below.)

STEP SEVEN: Prepare Parent/Instructor Teaching Notes for the Module.
The Parent/Instructor reads everything related to the lesson and writes notes to himself or herself about what needs to be done or said to teach the information to the student. NOTE: The Parent/Instructor Teaching Notes should be filed in the Student Notebook as evidence that you prepared and taught the lesson to your teen.

Each Lesson includes the following:

KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS: The lessons on the even numbered pages begin with a box. Inside the box are the student Knowledge and Skills. The Parent/Instructor scrolls past the introduction pages to the first Knowledge and Skills box (Page 4, Module 1). The Knowledge and Skills tell the Parent/Instructor what the student is supposed to know when they finish that page of instruction. The Parent/Instructor must repeat the lesson until the student has mastered (learned) each item of the Knowledge and Skills for that lesson.

TOPIC ACTIVITIES: The Topic Activities tell the Parent/Instructor what to do or say to the student.

LESSON PLANS: The even numbered pages are the lesson plans which contain the directions and information for the Parent/Instructor. It is where the Parent/Instructor obtains information about the lesson before teaching the lesson to the student.

TOPIC RESOURCES: The even numbered pages include a small picture or icon of the resource that goes with that particular lesson. Some of the resources listed such as videos and Textbooks are not required for the parent-taught course.

LESSON CONTENT: The odd numbered pages provide the Parent/Instructor with additional information, content, and facts to help them teach the lesson.

STEP EIGHT: Prepare a Parent Taught Drivers Ed Course 101 Teaching Log on a sheet of paper or on the computer.
The log maintained by the Parent/Instructor is in addition to the forms required by DPS [i.e., Classroom Instruction-Driver Education Affidavit (DL-90A) and the Behind the Wheel Instruction-Driver Education Affidavit (DL-90B)]. DPS may not ask to see the teaching logs but they are important to the Parent/Teacher because they 1) organize instruction, 2) provide information necessary to complete the required DPS forms, and 3) document instruction. The teaching logs should be filed in the Student Notebook as evidence that you prepared and taught the lesson to your child.

STEP NINE: Teach the lesson to the student. Use the instructor teaching notes, Module Lesson Plans, PowerPoint Slides, and Student Exams and Worksheets to teach the lesson to the student.

STEP TEN: Go to local DPS Driver License Station to obtain the student’s Instruction Permit after Module One is completed. You'll need to take the following items to the Driver License Station to obtain an Instruction Permit upon completion of the required classroom hours:

1. Parent Taught Drivers Ed Course 101 Instruction Log (See Step 8 above).

2. Application for Texas Driver License, DL-14A. (The DPS will notarize this form at the driver license office.)

3. Parental Driver Education Affidavit, DL-90A (Located in the Parent-Taught Packet. If missing, call the DPS Parent Taught Office)

4. Classroom Instruction Record, DL-91A (You may be required to present this form as proof you have completed all objectives outlined in the Parent-Taught Driver Education Program. It's located in the Parent Taught Packet. If missing, call the DPS Parent-Taught Office.)

5. Money to pay the required fee for the Instruction Permit (See the Texas Driver Handbook. If missing, call the DPS Parent Taught Office.)

6. Proof of Liability Insurance if you own a vehicle. (If you have questions about this requirement, contact your DPS Driver License Office.)

7. Proof of Identity (See the list of acceptable documents located in the Parent-Taught packet. If missing, call the DPS Parent-Taught Office.)

8. Proof of Social Security Number (See the list of acceptable documents located in the Parent-Taught packet. If missing, call the DPS Parent-Taught Office.)

9. Verification of Enrollment and Attendance (VOE) Form (sometimes called the TEA form) to prove that the student is enrolled and attending school. (You must obtain this completed form from the high school that the student attends. TEA cannot provide this completed form - only the high school can do that. For further details, or to obtain a blank copy of the form.

STEP ELEVEN: Repeat steps One through Nine until every lesson in Modules 2 – 10 has been taught and recorded on the Teaching Log. Modules 2 – 10 include both Classroom and In-car lessons. Each In-car lesson is taught after finishing that classroom lesson in Modules 2- 10. The state requires Parent/Instructors to complete 14 hours of In-Car lessons with the student driver. However, to ensure that a novice student driver has experience before he or she is allowed to drive alone, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends that Parent/Instructors provide their teen with a minimum of 50 supervised hours of in-car instruction before permitting the teen to receive a driver license.

STEP TWELVE: When the student meets Phase Two Licensing requirements for teen drivers (See the Parent-Taught Packet), return to your local DPS Driver License Station to obtain the student's Provisional Driver License. You'll need to take the following items to the Driver License Station to obtain the student's Provisional Driver License:

1. Parent Taught Drivers Ed Course 101 Instruction Log (See Step 8 above).

2. Valid Instruction Permit (The teen must be at least 16 and have held a VALID Instruction Permit for at least 6 months.)

3. Verification of Enrollment and Attendance (VOE) Form (sometimes called the TEA form) to prove that the student is enrolled and attending school. (You must obtain this completed form from the high school that the student attends. TEA cannot provide this completed form - only the high school can do that. For further details, or to obtain a blank copy of the form.

4. Parental Driver Education Affidavit, DL-90B (Located in the Parent Taught Driver Education Course Packet. If missing, call the DPS Parent-Taught Office.) 5. Classroom Instruction Record and Behind the Wheel Record Log, DL91A and DL-91B (You may be required to present these forms as proof you have completed all objectives outlined in the Parent-Taught Driver Education Program. It's located in the Parent-Taught Packet. If missing, call the DPS Parent-Taught Office.)

6. Money to pay the required fee for the Provisional Driver License.

7. Proof of Social Security Number (See the list of acceptable documents located in the Parent Taught Driver Education Course Packet. If missing, call the DPS Parent Taught Office.) A Provisional Driver License has passenger and time restrictions that are normally lifted after six months.
