What happens if I started the course before getting the PTDE program guide?

Technically, the state doesn't want you starting the course before you receive the program guide. If you did, however, stop working on the course and take the following steps right away:

  1. Make sure you have an eligible parent instructor before ordering the PTDE program guide.
  2. Order the PTDE program guide ASAP from the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR).
  3. When you receive the program guide, hang on to it for three days.
  4. After three days, let us know by contacting us to update your Permit Certificate date. This is done to ensure that the date printed on your Permit Certificate is after the date you received the PTDE program guide. Important note: please tell us the date that you received your program guide!
